Honor a loved one this holiday season by donating to the Lights of Love campaign

Honor or memorialize a loved one this holiday season by donating to the Tidelands Health Auxiliary’s Lights of Love holiday tree campaign.

The popular Lights of Love campaign is the auxiliary’s largest fundraising event each year. It was developed to help people honor loved ones, living or deceased, during the holiday season while also raising money to support scholarships for individuals seeking to advance their health care education.

For a minimum $5 tax-deductible donation per honoree, the auxiliary will illuminate a light on the holiday tree located in front of Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital or Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital. The trees will be lighted in December and remain illuminated throughout the holiday season.

Each donation will be acknowledged by a handwritten card sent to the honoree or the honoree’s family, and the name of each honoree will be listed on the Tidelands Health website.

“Seeing so many lights brighten the trees each year is a truly wonderful experience that captures the essence of the holiday season,” said Cathy Creteau, who is leading this year’s campaign for the auxiliary. “It’s a simple, yet beautiful, display of how much love and generosity exists in our community.”

Donations are already being accepted and can be made at any time through the end of December. For more information, or to donate, please call the auxiliary at 843-527-7107. Individuals can also donate by completing and returning the registration form available
