The colorfully decorated trees inside the lobby of Roosevelt Medical Center, the U.S. Post Office and First Community Bank are more than festive decorations. They symbolize the giving season and the comfort and joy you can provide during a month-long project geared toward enhancing the lives of the residents at RMC.

This year’s goal is to raise $2,500 to cover the cost of purchasing new curtains and bed-side blue-tooth television speakers for each resident’s room. Every $100 donation will cover the cost of completing one room.

Through the project, participants can honor or memorialize loved ones through varying gift options, while also sending messages in heartfelt cards for the residents to read and enjoy.

“We wanted to create a feel-good project that had the potential to bring comfort to the residents all year long. The holidays are a time for cherishing loved ones who are with us and who have passed and creating joy in the lives of others. This project celebrates those emotions while enhancing the lives of our community’s aged population for the better,” said Jaimee Green, Marketing and Foundation director for RMC.

The donation levels include a round bulb for $10, a glittered light bulb for $25, a lighted bulb for $50 or an angel wing ornament for $100.

The names of those being honored or memorialized will be placed on cards that will hang next to their designated ornament or lighted bulb on three trees that will be displayed in the lobby of RMC, First Community Bank and the USPS.

RMC is also asking donors to take the time to fill out the attached holiday card with a message for the residents to enjoy, some of whom may not see their families during the holidays. Each heartfelt greeting will be displayed in a special area where every resident can enjoy them.

The tradition of the Comfort & Joy Project has reached its seventh year and has raised nearly $20,000 since it began in 2015. In the past, the money has been used to purchase lift-recliners, couches, televisions, bedside tables, television programming, fireplaces and wall art. It also helps to cover the expense of the aviary and its maintenance.

Every penny raised is used toward the purchase of items for the residents.

If you would like to participate in the Comfort & Joy Project, brochures are available in the lobby at RMC, the USPS and First Community Bank.
