Bringing the Forest to you

October 20, 2020 Providence News Team

Like so many other events we know and love, this year’s Christmas in the Forest is going virtual. That just means we are bringing the Forest to you.

Make plans to visit after Thanksgiving, where you’ll have a chance to view the beautiful designer trees and wreaths in our virtual public viewing. Between Friday, Nov. 27 and Friday, Dec. 4, you’ll have the chance to bid on uniquely decorated and themed 2-foot mini-trees, plus some other special items from supporters of the Foundation.

More importantly, we ask you to generously support this year’s Fund-A-Need cause, the Sister Rita Patient Assistance Fund. This fund provides direct support for those with transportation, medical equipment and social service needs to transition from the hospital to home, where they can continue healing without the added burden of these financial barriers.

We are grateful to this year’s Platinum sponsor, Starbucks, plus the many other sponsors who step forward year after year to support the Mission of Providence.

 While we look forward to bringing you a virtual event this year, we can’t wait until we can gather together in person again!
