The Giving Tree ensures every resident is remembered on Christmas morning. For those living in long-term care, life can be lonely. Imagine – having no one. Please support the The Giving Tree to help a Northwood resident feel loved. Your gift will make a difference.

How do you participate?

At each Northwood location (Bedford, Halifax, Dartmouth), a tree will be displayed with different tags. You can choose a tag, purchase the item on the tag, or you can also choose a monetary tag to make a donation. Donations will be used to purchase something for a resident.

If your business would like to get involved, please contact Debra Norman at 902.493.3015 to get you started.

Would you like to be a champion for your office?

1. Sign up to be the champion for your office. This means that you will display the tags on a tree of your choice at your office, collect items and all money donated.
2. Spread the word about how each staff member can make a difference – every dollar makes a huge difference!
3. Ensure that people donating have written down their name and address for an official income tax receipt.
4. Collect all items by December 12th and give Debra a call at 902.493.3015 for pick up. You can also email Debra at
