Mount Carmel Foundation 'Remember Me Tree' Dedication Ceremony

Updated:
PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

A holiday tradition continues with the name reading and dedication of Mount Carmel Foundation's Remember Me Tree at Meadowbrook Mall on Monday, Dec. 8.

The Remember Me Tree is decorated in memory and honor of loved ones, and will also honor members of our military forces.

Decorations for the tree include red bows, dove ornaments, hearts, angels and American Flag hearts or stars. The names of those recognized are attached to the decorations, and are also listed on a ledger next to the tree.

The event includes a reading of the names of those honored on the Remember Me Tree, along with music by the Pittsburg Community School Youth Chorale.

Money raised from the Mount Carmel Foundation Remember Me Tree is used locally, supporting the mission of Via Christi Hospital Pittsburg, Inc. The Foundation's efforts have assisted the hospital in maintaining leading edge technology and service expansions that contribute to quality health care for people throughout southeast Kansas. The Mount Carmel Foundation has pledged to raise $1.2 million for Via Christi Pittsburg's Women's Services Center that will vastly expand health care options for expecting mothers and women of all ages.

Donations for ornaments for the Remember Me Tree may be made through Christmas. Contact the Mount Carmel Foundation office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at 620.232.0197.
