Children’s Hospital Gathering Tiny Trees For Patients

Thursday, November 14, 2019

Children’s Hospital at Erlanger is collecting miniature Christmas trees to decorate the rooms of young patients in December. These small decorated trees will add a little brightness during difficult times for children and their families.

Child life specialists will deliver the trees to children’s rooms and when patients leave the hospital, they may take their trees home. 

Those wishing to contribute miniature trees may drop them off either Thursday, Dec. 12, or Friday, Dec. 13, between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at the table in the Medical Mall near Starbucks. Please limit donations to five per organization. If a group would like to make a large donation please contact Emilia Jones prior to starting.

Instructions for trees are as follows:  Trees must be 3 feet tall or smaller.  No live trees; they must be artificial.  Pick a theme for a child or teenager, ornaments may be purchased or handmade.  Toys, such as dolls or cars, may be wired onto trees. No food items on trees. Securely tie or wire ornaments onto trees; no loose ornaments, please.   Please be sure ornaments do not include glass, sharp objects or anything that could be a choking hazard. 

Lights are great, but battery-powered lights are best. 

For more information, contact Emilia Jones at 778-7892 or email emilia.jones@erlanger.org.
