Event description

Description

The holiday season is upon us and it is a very special opportunity to celebrate the life of loved ones. You can remember loved ones who have passed away or honor those living and those who are suffering illnesses. West Virginia Caring’s annual Light up A Life event begins now and continues through the end of the year.

For the past 34 years, West Virginia Caring has held its Light up a Life annual campaign. Light up a Life is one of WV Caring’s traditions to raise money for the organization’s patient care fund that makes care possible for people who have life-limiting illnesses but have no ability to pay for care. There are eighteen trees located throughout WV Caring’s twelve county service area in North Central West Virginia.

Light up a Life is personal because it is one way a person can memorialize their loved ones. While you can’t send cards, buy them a gift or have them at home for the holidays, you can memorialize and honor a loved one’s life by hanging an ornament on the tree in their name and support West Virginia Caring.

All of the money raised stays right here in the counties WV Caring serves to help people receive the care they deserve.

For a donation, individuals can place a light, ornament or a special keepsake angel on a tree in any of the participating locations. Donations are made in memory or honor of a friend or loved one. Everyone who is remembered or honored is entered into a memory book, which is on display throughout the season.

This year the keepsake angel is holding a house. Lights, ornaments and the handmade keepsake angels are available for a donation. Lights can be sponsored for $5, ornaments for $ 20, and the porcelain keepsake angel is $35. And, support for West Virginia Caring can be provided through contributions. All donations are tax deductible.

The tree lightings and locations are listed below. For more information about participating with Light up a Life contact West Virginia Caring at 1-800-350-1161 or visit the website for easy, online ordering at www.wvcaring.org.
