WHY: For over 30-years, Macey’s has had a long-standing relationship with Primary Children’s Hospital. This June a three-week fundraiser was held in all Macey’s locations where generous guests and Macey’s stores donated the combined $70,000.00.
ABOUT THE ANGEL GARDEN: The Angel Garden serves patients, parents and staff of the hospital as a place of solace, surrounded by a fountain and garden. The garden is medically safe, equipped with outlets for IV pumps or other medically necessary devices allowing children who long to go outside a moment to feel the sunshine and take in the beauty of the garden. Parents use the garden as a healing source and a place to seek peace. Even staff at Primary Children’s Hospital utilize the garden for respite and on difficult days when they need to find a moment to decompress and alleviate stress.
A renovation of the garden is set to take place next year where additional trees, plants and new fountain will be added—making the garden truly a healing place.
