The Tree of Life is an annual benefit for Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam. It captures the solemn spirit of the holiday season and provides people with a wonderful way to remember loved ones in a special way. Individuals may purchase ornamental doves to be inscribed with the name of a loved one, which are then displayed on evergreen trees at the Jefferson Valley Mall for the duration of the holiday season. Doves may be purchased at the event locations or by calling (914) 666-4228 or online at www.vnahv.org.
All proceeds from the event benefit Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam, a not-for-profit organization which offers comprehensive programs for patients with advanced or life-threatening illnesses in Westchester and Putnam Counties. Bereavement support groups are also offered, at no cost to participants, to children and adults in the community.
