The kickoff of Memorial Hospital Auxiliary's 2020 Tree of Remembrance fund drive has raised a total of $3,940.

Every year the Auxiliary raises money to help the hospital buy needed equipment. Funds collected this season will be used to buy Patient Care Bags for our Chemo/Infusion patients. These bags will include comfort items such as a blanket, socks, ChapStick, stress ball, and other items that the patients can use during their treatments that they will be receiving at Memorial Hospital Chemo/Infusion Department.

The bags will help make the patient's stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

To make a donation or a memorial contribution in honor of a loved one, mail it to: Tree of Remembrance Drive, c/o Chairman Apryl Bradshaw, Memorial Hospital, 1900 State St., Chester, 62233.
