Your Jericho

The Memory Tree

Please join us as we welcome back our beloved Memory Tree in its 4th year adorned with the names of our friends and family members in memory or celebration of their lives. Each name is written by hand onto a beautiful ribbon, hand-tied to the tree, and as an option, we will also send a Jericho Christmas card to notify the receiver you are thinking of them or chose to celebrate and honor their name in a meaningful way this Christmas.

Your donation of $10 per person or $40 for five people is tax-deductible and helps JERICHO to provide programs and support to our community. May this Christmas be a blessing of joy for you and yours. Thank you for returning this form and contributing to this annual tradition.
