In the heart of Delaware, the holiday season sparkles with the warmth of tradition and community spirit. For the past 36 years, the dedicated team at Hopkins & Sons has eagerly embraced the festive duty of delivering Christmas trees and wreaths for the Festival of Trees, a cherished event organized by Delaware Hospice. This year was no exception, as our team stepped in with enthusiasm, ensuring the continuation of this annual celebration.
In the early 1990s, our connection with Delaware Hospice began when Catherine Hopkins Grieco, who retired in 2015, graciously offered the services of Hopkins & Sons to assist with moving Christmas trees. What started as a networking event turned into a longstanding partnership. Since 1991, we have proudly been the Christmas tree-moving partner for Delaware Hospice, delivering joy and holiday cheer to those in need.
This year's Festival of Trees featured specialty trees such as the Remembrance Tree, Memorial Tree and New Hope Tree. Acknowledging the profound impact of Delaware Hospice's support programs, we recognize the importance of contributing to a cause that aids families dealing with loss. The Hopkins & Sons team believes that even the smallest gesture, like delivering trees, can make a significant difference in supporting the community.
Moving fully decorated Christmas trees presents a unique challenge, but the Hopkins & Sons team, with their knowledge and experience, ensures the trees arrive at their destination with their festive integrity intact. Post-event, the trees find new homes in homeless shelters and children's charities, spreading holiday spirit to places that may not otherwise experience such beautifully adorned trees. It's a testament to our commitment to delivering trees and preserving the joy they bring to different corners of the community.
As the holiday season unfolds, it's good to take a pause from the usual hustle and bustle to give back to those who truly need it. In the season of giving, Hopkins & Sons stands tall, proving that sometimes, the most cherished gifts are the ones wrapped in love and shared with the community. Contact us today to learn more.
