Florence, SC - McLeod Hospice will celebrate the 36th Annual "A Light for Someone You Love" Tree Lighting Ceremony on Thursday, December 2, at 5:45 p.m. The ceremony will be held at McLeod Regional Medical Center adjacent to the McLeod Center for Cancer Treatment and Research.
During the ceremony, the family of Allene Griffin will light the trees and Cole Davis will perform.
For the protection and safety of everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will follow CDC health guidelines for social distancing. Masks and hand sanitizer will also be provided as well as a battery operated candle. If attendees prefer to remain in their vehicle during the event, the speakers’ remarks can be heard by tuning their car radio to channel 107.7 FM.
Lights are available with gifts to McLeod Hospice of $25 each. Sponsorships are also available for $1,000 in honor of or memory of an individual. One hundred percent of each gift is tax-deductible. Please call the McLeod Foundation if you are interested in a sponsorship. Individuals, groups and organizations are encouraged to participate by supporting McLeod Hospice in this meaningful way.
"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 a grief camp for children, Camp Jessie's Kids.
McLeod Hospice serves patients in Florence, Darlington, Dillon, Chesterfield, Marlboro, Horry, Lee, Sumter, Marion, Clarendon 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.
