When an immediate family member dies, or someone is hospitalized or confined, a floral crew creates & delivers an arrangement in a compassion mug.

A card crew arranges for group consolation messages to Westwoodians in difficult circumstances. A memorial card of recognition is also sent on the anniversary of a significant loss.

Compassion Cards, featuring a unique design & the logo “Lean on Us”, are available for congregants to use for a personal message.

Just some of the many ways Westwood keeps in touch with folks we care about.
