McLeod Hospice will celebrate the 34th Annual “A Light for Someone You Love” Tree Lighting Ceremony in Florence on December 5 at 5:45 p.m. The ceremony will be held at McLeod Regional Medical Center in front of the McLeod Center for Cancer Treatment and Research.
This event is free and open to the public, however, it is the annual fundraising event which supports the McLeod Hospice program. Many of our families use this as a time to “light a light” in memory of someone ($25 donation per light) as a way to provide support for this compassionate care. Names of those remembered are included in the printed program that evening. Please be sure to include the name(s) of those you would like to remember as well as name and address of anyone you would like to acknowledge of you gift. Proceeds raised through the tree lighting’s will directly benefit McLeod Hospice.
“The Light for Someone You Love” program is sponsored by the McLeod Health Foundation to directly fund items needed for the McLeod Hospice House, to help patients remain comfortable in their homes, provide bereavement care for families being served as well as others in the community, and to offer the children’s grief support program.
McLeod Hospice serves patients in Chesterfield, Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Horry, Lee, Marion, Marlboro, Sumter and Williamsburg counties.
While the lighted trees will brighten the community this season, the gifts they represent will help bring the light of hope to McLeod Hospice patients and their families.
