The Tree of Lights is an annual event sponsored by the Wells House Auxiliary and serves as both a fund-raiser as well as an opportunity for friends of Wells House to come together during this special season.



How your contributions have helped

Participants in our 2009 Tree of Lights fund-raiser allowed the Wells House Auxiliary to purchase:

  • Leader Herald subscriptions for each floor
  • flowers for the front porch and courtyard
  • stock pots for the resident's kitchen
  • a copier for the physical therapy department
  • six new over-the-bed tables
  • utility carts for dietary
  • a family pack for staff CPR training
  • scholarship money for BOCES nursing students
  • picnic and luncheons for the residents and Adult Day Health Registrants

This year the Auxiliary hopes that this fund-raiser will help them provide

  • new knives for the dietary department
  • new TV's for each floor to be mounted on the wall for all to view
  • a DVD player for each floor
  • pulse oximeter for the nursing staff
  • additional items as needed that are not provided in the Wells Nursing Home budget
