2 minute read

Dear Festival Supporter,
Once again, let us take this opportunity to thank you for your past sponsorship support. For the last 26 years, Festival of Trees has provided more than $16 million to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre thanks in part to your generosity.
While it was a difficult decision, Festival of Trees has been closed to the public due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases in our province however we are still moving forward with a virtual Tree Room, online Silent Auction and our Festival Virtual Fete.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, but we need to lead by example and prioritize the health and safety of our community, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and staff.
We remain committed to enhancing healthcare in Central Alberta. Although Festival of Trees is closed to the public, we are offering a number of ways for our community to participate virtually while supporting our goal of raising funds for electronic fetal monitoring for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and other care centres in Central Alberta.
We will showcase the Tree Room and sponsor banners virtually, through Facebook Live and our other social media channels. Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/rdrhfoundation to be notified when we go live.
You will be able to view packages and bid from any computer or mobile device: www.reddeerfestivaloftrees.ca/auction.
We are grateful for your commitment to Festival of Trees, and most importantly our healthcare. We thank everyone who had made plans to attend this year’s Festival of Trees and we look forward to a time where we can gather again.
If you have questions or concerns, please email [email protected].
With sincerest regards,
Red Deer Regional Health Foundation

We’ve received a donation of use of a Dodge Caravan from Southside Dodge- they’ve been an incredible support of us over the years.  Attached is the photo we took at the dealership when we picked up the keys on Friday.

Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta, Red Deer House is truly grateful to Matt Swainson and his entire team at Southside Dodge for their steadfast support of our work to keep families together during the unimaginable hardship of the need to travel for medical treatment for their sick or injured child. Our House is not a nice to have, but a need to have, and we are honoured to work with such an amazing community partner in Southside. The use of the 2021 Dodge Caravan will help us to keep our operating costs down so that we can focus on our work to keep families close.

We have operated in the city for over 8 years, ensuring there is a safe and comfortable place for families to rest while they focus on the recovery of their child(ren).

We are grateful to everyone in Red Deer who supports us!  😊

Smiles Thru Lindsey reaching out with a new video message and urging Albertans to look out for each other at this challenging time

Published on

The holiday season is well behind us, we’re heading into the coldest part of the winter, and although the days are starting to grow longer there’s still a definite lack of daylight in our lives.  The winter blues are a real thing and this year we have COVID, a whole new serious problem to add to our mental health issues.

COVID is also the reason the Smiles Thru Lindsey team has not been able do public events for many months.  Unable to reach out physically through school visits and fund raisers, Smiles Thru Lindsey is reminding Central Albertans to check in on each other.  Also, please follow the Smiles Thru Lindsey Facebook page .  They’ll lead you to the resources you or your loved ones need right away.

Meet Lindsey and the Smiles Thru Lindsey team in this powerful video.  …And remember to check in on the people in your life.
