Tree of Lights

For many in South Georgia, the holiday season is a time to honor and remember friends and loved ones through contributions to the Archbold Foundation Tree of Lights. Proceeds from this time-honored tradition help to provide critical resources for services and support programs & special events Hospice of Southwest Georgia offers to patients, families and our communities.

On Thursday, December 2nd, 2021, donors, families and the community once again gathered on the hospital’s front lawn for the traditional tree lighting – a ceremony that heralds the beginning of the holiday season and offers a celebration of life and remembrance for those attending. Mr. Richard Vann and his family lit the tree in memory of Ann Vann, with each light on the tree representing a donation made in honor or in memory of an individual. Guests enjoyed holiday music, s’mores, hot chocolate, the arrival of Santa Claus, and much more!

For the fifth year in a row the presenting sponsor of the Tree of Lights was TC Federal Bank. “We are grateful for the support from our good friends at TC Federal,” said Middleton. “They are great corporate stewards who give back to so many in our community.”

Thanks to the generous support of donors to the 2021 Tree of Lights, over $28,000 was raised to benefit Hospice of Southwest Georgia, so physicians, staff and volunteers can continue to deliver compassionate care to patients who are facing the end of life and provide informational and emotional support for their families.
