Tree of Lights

For many in South Georgia, the holiday season is a time to honor and remember friends and loved ones by making donations to the Archbold Foundation Tree of Lights. The Tree of Lights tradition began 30 years ago as part of the effort to raise funds for the first Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center. Now, for more than 25 years, contributions have benefited Hospice of Southwest Georgia.

When donations are made towards the Tree of Lights, gifts are acknowledged and cards are sent throughout December. A tribute book is on display in the hospital lobby during this time. A donation of $10 per individual honored is suggested, but gifts of any size are welcome. Donations can be made through the website by clicking on the donate now button below or by mail. If you prefer to mail in your donation and your list of tributes then a tribute designation form is linked below for your convenience.

Due to COVID restrictions on public gatherings, we unfortunately are unable to have our traditional tree lighting ceremony on the front lawn of the hospital this year. While we are sad that we cannot gather together this year, we will still have the tree lit every evening throughout the month of December, recognizing all those who have been honored. This year, we are honored to have the Richard Mooney family to officially “light” the tree in memory of Cathy Mooney who lost her long and courageous fight with cancer in March. Please be on the lookout for a special video tribute on social media and on our website about the Tree of Lights and the impact of Hospice of Southwest Georgia in our community.

Thank you for considering a gift to the Archbold Foundation Tree of Lights. Gifts will be accepted and acknowledged throughout the remainder of the year. Should you have questions, please call the Archbold Foundation office at 229-228-2924 or email

On behalf of everyone at the Archbold Foundation, we wish you a joyous holiday season!
