Island Medical Center's Hospital Auxiliary is conducting
its Angels of Love holiday tree program again this year. For a 10-dollar
donation, you can honor someone who has been, or is dear to you by dedicating
an angel to them on one of the hospital's holiday trees. KMXT's Erik Wander has
Colleen Newman, President of the Kodiak
Hospital Auxiliary, said the Angels of Love program is a good way to honor someone
you remember or admire, for a small donation.
-- (Newman 1 30 sec "Every
year, we decorate ... the one that is being honored.")
the sale of the angels go toward a medical education scholarship program.
Newman said there are several ways to donate and dedicate an angel to a friend
or loved one.
-- (Newman 2 27 sec "The
funds from the sale ... at Safeway the next two Fridays.")
In 2007, the project raised 2,400-dollars
toward the scholarship fund. Newman said that while the majority of the funds
from the sale of the angels goes to the scholarship program, others benefit as
well, including seniors and hospital employees.
-- (Newman 3 38 sec "Our
biggest thing ... some of them take two.")
If you want
to remember or honor someone special in your life by purchasing an angel, you
can leave your donation at the Providence
Kodiak Island Medical
Center reception desk or
visit Safeway from 1 to 6 p.m. on Friday, December 5th or Friday, December 12th.
Each 10-dollar donation will name an angel on the PKIMC holiday trees, which
will be displayed until January 15th. I'm Erik Wander.
