This year the many donations to the Tree of Life Campaign will support the Auxiliary’s commitment to purchase a new defibrillator in the SMHC Emergency department providing a true gift of life. As guests arrived for the ceremony, luminaries lined the front entrance and a reading of the donors was read in honor of or memorializing their loved ones. The SMHC Auxiliary will continue accepting donations to the campaign through the end of the year. To make a gift, contact SMHC’s Development Office at 283-7235.
