Hospice of Hilo Seeking Volunteers for “Light Up a Life” Events

Hospice of Hilo invites individuals and groups to provide volunteer support for its 27th annual “Light Up a Life” event hosted at the two Prince Kuhio Plaza Macy’s from November 25th to December 24th.

Each year, during the holiday season, Hospice of Hilo sets up a Tree of Remembrance at each of the two Macy’s entrances in the mall allowing the community to honor loved ones by hanging a personalized commemorative ornament on the tree.  For many, the ornaments are a symbolic connection with loved ones and a reminder that they remain alive in our hearts.

Community volunteers are needed to provide support at the tables from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and are scheduled to provide service in 2-3 hour shifts.  Volunteers are asked to provide a loving presence for those shoppers who wish to decorate and hang an ornament.  Donations are accepted for the ornaments, but are not required.  Volunteers are requested to assist any person who chooses to donate by accepting cash, check or credit card on behalf of Hospice of Hilo.

“Volunteers are vital to the annual ʻLight Up a Lifeʻ, helping with ornaments, being caring hearts, listening to stories and honoring the memories of loved ones in our community. We couldn’t do it without their support,” said Volunteer Manager Jeanette Mochida.

Hospice of Hilo provides specialized comfort care for patients facing a life-limiting or serious illness.  Services are delivered to patients in their place of residence, or at the Pōhai Mālama a Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Care Center.  In addition to hospice services, Hospice of Hilo also provides bereavement counseling to any and all residents who have lost a loved one (regardless of whether the loved one received hospice care).

If you, or your group, is interested in supporting compassionate care in East Hawai‘i call Lisa Kwee at 969-1733, to sign up.
