Wishing Tree Fundraiser Announced
Tawas City: Hospice Angelic Care and Angelicâ€™s Attic & Hospice Thrift Store will launch its Wishing Tree fundraising campaign November 23. By contributing $1.00 donors have an opportunity to write down a wish specific for themselves, or to honor their friends and family members. The funds raised will help support individuals needing a helping hand for the Christmas season.
The community is invited to stop at either the Hospice Angelic Care office located at 314 M-55, Tawas City or the Angelicâ€™s Attic & Hospice Thrift Store located at 1250 S. US 23, Tawas City. The Wish will be written down on gold foiled paper, rolled, tied with a gold ribbon and then placed on the Tree that will be illuminated throughout the holiday season. The Wishing Trees are located in the front lobby entrance to both the Hospice Angelic Care office and the front window of the Angelicâ€™s Attic & Hospice Thrift Store Window.
In keeping with tradition, the lighting of the trees will take place the day after Thanksgiving to mark the beginning of the holiday season. The trees will stay illuminated until the first of the New Year. The staff and volunteers have set a goal to raise funds that will be used to purchase needed items that chosen disadvantaged families indicate are a necessity to getting through the winter months.
The community can support the Wishing Tree by making a $1.00 donation to purchase their special golden wish that is hung on the Wishing Tree. Every time a wish is made, an angel gets her wings. For more information, call Royann at 989-362-6600.
