It was a beautiful day today! We really could not have picked a better day to decorate the angel ornament tree. We had some great helpers volunteer their afternoons to help us get everything done. The area around the hospital is called Mueller. Mueller graciously allowed us to decorate a tree in the park directly behind the hospital. The tree can be seen from the road if you drive to the backside of the hospital. The best part is that some of the patient rooms can see the tree as well.
If you have lost a child and were not able to join us to make the decorations, please feel free to add your own ornament. The tree will stay up until the first weekend in January. After we take the ornaments down, anyone that made an ornament will be able to pick them up at the Palliative Care office.
The tree is located in the park at the corner of Robert Browning and Philomena (behind Dell Children’s Hospital- just in front of the playscape).
If you are in the area be sure to drive by. Our volunteers did a great job. Each of the ornaments on the tree is made with love and tells it’s own story.
We had fun decorating the tree, and even got in some time to fly a kite and enjoy the beautiful day. Thank you to our volunteers for your help. Thanks to Dell Children’s Palliative Care team for helping to coordinate all of the details too.
