The final tally is in, and our local communities have once again shown their incredible generosity. More than $65,000 was raised through the 25th annual Judy Lannin Christmas Wish Tree. Donations were made to the WDMH Foundation in honour or memory of family and friends.
Proceeds go to the Family Care Fund “to support families just like yours”, and to help ensure that Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) can continue to provide compassionate, excellent health care.
“It is only because of you that we can provide the WDMH team with the right tools needed to care for patients and families – so close to home. The beautiful Christmas Wish tree was adorned with ornaments representing the donations our community has made,” notes WDMH Foundation Managing Director Kristen Casselman. “We are so grateful for your support.”
In the past 25 years, our generous donors have donated more than $1,215,000 through the Wish Tree program – thank you! Thank you as well to our sponsors who help to make the event possible.
