The Angel Tree is an annual tradition where members of our community can make a donation to Mariposa House Hospice in honour of a loved one. A special angel ornament is placed on the tree along with a message about the loved one being remembered.
Our sincere thanks to Kristopher Orchard and Jamie Campbell of 6 Doors Up/OC Emporium for, once again, choosing Mariposa House Hospice as the beneficiary of this unique event.
In years past, Bob Willsey set aside space for the Angel Tree at Mariposa Market from mid-November to late-December. Volunteers accepted donations and placed the angels on the tree. In 2020, COVID has presented our volunteers with a challenge! To find a balance between tradition and safety, we have chosen to host the Angel Tree “virtually” this year. Donations will be made online, and the tree will be set up at the hospice building where a team of volunteers will hang the angels several times a week. We will post photo and video updates on social media so that community members can share in this beautiful tradition with a virtual twist.
To sponsor an angel, participants are invited to donate using credit card, cash, or cheque. To donate online, visit http://www.mariposahousehospice.com/donate, select “Angel Tree” in the drop down menu, and enter the name of the loved one being remembered. A short message can be added following their name which will accompany the angel on the tree. For cash or cheque donations, please contact Sue Morris at 705-327-6191.
