Providence Festival of Trees will “Dazzle and Delight” everyone who attends this annual Portland holiday tradition, now in its 33rd year.
Could there be a more perfect holiday for children than Christmas? And, this year, the beneficiary of this magical Christmas event will be children. One in 5 youngsters has special needs, developmental delays or disabilities, and the community lacks the resources to care for them all. Providence provides specialized evaluation, treatment, education and support for children facing challenges such as autism, cerebral palsy, complex ADHA, Down syndrome or sensory processing disorder.
Providence Children’s Health is committed to reversing a state and national trend of limited access to care for these children and their families. And, as a beneficiary of the 2015 Providence Festival of Trees, Providence is able to begin expanding developmental, behavioral and neurological services to nearly double the number of children seen each year. Long term, Providence Children’s Health will become a center of excellence for young people with special health needs.
Children of all ages will be able to help build the Providence program as they celebrate the season by wandering through the festival’s winter wonderland filled with 100 trees of all sizes, wreaths and holiday vignettes created by local designers, businesses and more than 1,200 volunteers. Live music, Santa photos, a teddy bear hospital, an elaborate miniature Christmas village, an intricate Portland-themed LEGO display and cookie decorating promise hours of entertainment for those who attend.
