Tree of Life - Memorial Celebration

Sunday, December 10th – 3 PM @ NOC Gantz Center
Call for an invitation (234-2273) or stop by our office (314 S. Third)
Ornaments available for a $25.00 tax deductible donation.

The holidays can be a time of special memories and some of them involve loved ones who are no longer with us.  Placing an ornament on the Hospice Circle of Love Tree of Life is one way to remember them.

The 2017 Tree of Life celebration will be held Sunday, December 10th at 3:00 PM at the NOC Enid campus in the Gantz Center.  The event will include Christmas music, a brief spiritual message by Hospice Circle of Love Chaplain Gary Miller, reading of the names on the Tree of Life and a cookie and punch reception.  The celebration is also a time for former hospice families and their hospice caregivers to reconnect.

All of Hospice Circle of Love’s patients who have died in the last year will be automatically included at no charge.  Their names will be placed on tags attached to silver and gold bells and placed on a trio of Christmas trees at the event.  Anyone else who would like to participate can do so with a $25.00 tax deductible donation for each name they would like to include.

Those attending the Tree of Life Celebrations will get a chance following the event to take their loved ones ornament home to put on their own Christmas tree or to use as a Christmas gift.  The ornaments will also be available for pick-up at the Hospice Circle of Love office during working hours.  Ornaments are available for purchase at the Hospice Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third or by calling 580-234-2273 for an invitation & order form.

All of the money raised with this event will help off-set costs of patient care for those who don’t have a Medicare or insurance hospice benefit.  Hospice Circle of Love has donated over $2.5 Million in free care since opening their doors in 1983.

Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

Hospice Circle of Love is looking for new volunteers to help make a difference in the lives of patients and their families. Potential volunteers are invited to join the team by taking a volunteer training course, scheduled for February 9th & 16th from 2 to 5 each day at the Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third in Enid.

Hospice Circle of Love volunteers provide respite for caregivers and companionship to patients. In addition, they assist with the agency’s annual fundraisers, such as book sales, Tree of Life and a clay shoot. They also work in the office, which might include putting together packets for hospice intakes, filing or answering phones during a staff meeting. In addition, volunteers assist the agency by helping with annual flu clinics, working health fair booths, or helping to maintain the organization’s Veteran’s Memorial Garden.

“There are many ways our volunteers help out and each one is important,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson. “Volunteers choose which areas they are most interested in and that’s where they are placed.”

Anyone who is interested in being a volunteer can call Julie at 580-234-2273
