REED CITY — Wigs, gas cards or special radiation therapy gowns may not be on your holiday shopping list, but for patients at Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital it could make all the difference in the world.

The Holiday Wish Tree program allows participants to grant a wish this season — onsite or online. You’ll have a direct impact on the care and comfort of patients and families.

Holiday Wish Trees are currently located inside the Spectrum Health Reed City Family Practice lobby, rehab and nursing Center and the Susan P. Wheatlake Regional Cancer Center. The trees are donned with envelopes that contain information about a specific need and instructions for how to help meet that need.

If you can’t visit a tree in person to grant a wish, you can see a list of items and donate online by visiting give.spectrumhealth.org/reed-city or call (231) 832-7184.
