Tree of Life Campaign

35th Annual Tree of Life Campaign

 There is a lot of power packed into a $10 bulb!

The Tree of Life has been a Kenora tradition since 1987. Remembering and honouring your loved ones by purchasing $10 bulbs for the lite Tree behind LWDH, has helped raise over $1.7 million for your hospital and fund critical new equipment like respirators, adjustable patient beds and most recently the Fluoroscopy Suite project.

It is a common misconception that all hospital needs are covered by your tax dollars. While the government of Ontario funds day-to-day operation costs and staff, they do not provide funding for ongoing hospital equipment and capital needs. LWDHF relies on the generosity of people like you, our community, to help keep our hospital up to date and replace aging equipment with modern technology.

It is no secret our community is growing and together we must be proactive to ensure that when patients come through the hospital doors seeking care, LWDH has the equipment needed to test, diagnose, and treat them. Funds raised through the 2022 Tree of Life Campaign will be directed to purchasing new Vital Sign Machine Carts, a McCulloch Retractor for Surgical Services and a Fetal Monitor for the Maternity ward! The Foundation Board of Directors and Staff wish you a safe and happy holiday season.

*In 2022 LWDHF is offering special commemorative tree ornaments available to purchase for $20 each through LWDHF offices. With each ornament purchased you will receive your ornament and one bulb lit on the Tree of Life, as well as a charitable tax receipt for the value of the donation ($10).  Shipping will be available for out of town purchases.  Free local pick up will be available at LWDHF Offices.


Ornaments are NOT available for purchase via our online Canada Helps donation form.
