Hospice of Mercy hosting Love Lights celebration

In an expression of honor and remembrance of loved ones, Hospice of Mercy invites the public to participate in its Love Lights celebration beginning at 5 p.m. Dec. 6 . 

Love Lights is an annual tradition at the Dennis & Donna Oldorf Hospice House of Mercy, located at 315 18th Ave. in Hiawatha. Each light on the holiday tree signifies a gracious gift of support in honor of a loved one, helping Hospice of Mercy to serve patients on their final journeys, as well as their family members. 

The Love Lights celebration will include a brief memorial program and tree lighting, which begins at 5:45 p.m., as well as cocoa and cookies, to honor Hospice of Mercy patients, families, staff, volunteers and the community.

To learn more about making a gift of support, call the Mercy Foundation at (319) 398-6206 or visit mercycare.org/giving/donate-now/.
