The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is a yearly holiday campaign that supports our Care & Share program, ensuring that each and every Northwood resident receives a gift on Christmas morning.

For those living in long-term care, life can be lonely. Imagine having no one to share the holiday season with? 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 a variety of tags by late November. You can choose a tag and purchase the item on the tag, or you can choose a monetary tag to make a donation. Monetary donations will be used to purchase something for a resident. You can drop off your donations at any of our locations, or contact us to arrange a pick up.  

Thank you for embracing our Northwood Community this holiday season. Please know that your dedication and commitment to our residents will put a smile on someone’s face and a glow in their hearts. It’s hard to describe the feeling that is created when someone is remembered and not forgotten.

We’ll do the shopping for you!

Due to Covid-19, we recognize that some people may not be comfortable buying goods in store this year. To make things easier, we are accepting online donations for the amount of the product you wish to give – and we will do the shopping for you!

Please click the donate now button below and enter the dollar amount value of the purchase you wish to give.
