  • Share:
LEWISBURG- Evangelical Community Hospital is holding its annual Lights of Love giving campaign to support Hospice of Evangelical. Throughout November and December, gifts will be collected to support direct care and provide resources to patients and their families who are experiencing end-of-life needs.

Lights of Love offers an opportunity to honor and remember family, friends, and loved ones by placing their names on the honoree listing. The Lights of Love tree will make its debut on December 4, 2022, and then shine brightly at Hospice of Evangelical throughout December. Honorees and donors will be recognized in The Daily Item in January 2023 and special notifications will be provided to donors to share with honorees or their family members.

Individuals wishing to make monetary donations to the 35th Annual Lights of Love in support of Hospice of Evangelical can do so through December 31, 2022. Donations can be made by visiting www.EvanHospital.com/LightsOfLove or by calling Philanthropy and Donor Relations at 570-522-2685. A video of the tree lighting will be available on the site after December 4, 2022.

The 2022 Lights of Love Honorary Chairperson is Tracie Diehl, whose aunt Virginia Hackenberg, known as Aunt Ginny, received her care through Hospice of Evangelical. Hospice staff members who knew them, considered it a privilege to witness the love and compassion shared between Tracie and Virginia.

At the height of COVID-19 restrictions, Tracie found herself unable to visit Virginia often, except through the window of her apartment. Tracie accepted support from Hospice of Evangelical, including nurses, aides, and social workers to meet Virginia’s changing physical and emotional needs. Tracie found solace in the regular communication from staff regarding Virginia’s status and appreciated the emotional support she was provided as a grieving niece.

Tracie and Virginia’s journey is an example where Hospice of Evangelical played a vital role in providing the highest quality of life through the right care given at the right time.
