A Beautiful and Lasting Memorial
Memorial gifts support bereavement services for parents who have suffered the heartbreak of losing a child. A memorial Corian tile is a beautiful way to pay tribute to children who live on with us in our memories. For a gift of $100, teal or taupe tiles are inscribed in gold with the child's name, footprint (optional), date of birth, and date of death – with a duplicate provided to the donor. This is a special way to cherish the memory of a precious little one.
Honor Roll Recognition
With a minimum gift of $100, we will place a beautiful Corian tile (teal for boys, taupe for girls) etched with your child's actual footprint, name, and birth date on The Maternity Place Honor Roll wall located near the unit's nursery. In addition, you (or your honoree) will receive a duplicate tile with a gold easel for freestanding display. Honor Roll babies and donors will also be recognized in the Samaritan Foundation's newsletter and Annual Report to the Community. Extra tiles for proud grandparents and other family members or friends can be ordered for just $25 each.
