(Spencer)-The Garden of Life Campaign is underway in Spencer, KUOO's Becky Thoreson has details:
Spencer Regional Healthcare Foundation has started their annual Garden of Life Campaign. Susan Zulk, Vice President of Marketing and Fund Development explains. "The Garden of Life Campaign is one that the Spencer Regional Healthcare Foundation and Hospice of Spencer Hospital have jointly done the last several years. Each spring, we invite people who are interested in making a contribution in memory of a loved one that has passed away, or in honor of a special caregiver. With that contribution, we purchase a flower and we plant that in the Hospital Garden, which is right along Grand Avenue, and right in front of the Spencer Hospital."
She notes that there are several ways to donate. "On the Spencer Hospital website there is a donate tab, and so on there you can make a gift online and you can specify it's for the Garden of Life, and then you can specify who you want that gift given in memory of or in honor of. You can call our office, too, and Mindy Gress is our Foundation Director, so you can speak with her. We have a plaque, and then each summer we update the plaque so people can see who made a gift, but also who that gift was in honor of, which is really special."
Due to COVID-19 concerns, there will not be a planting ceremony this year. However, the public is encouraged to visit the garden.
