Light Up A Life

Light Up A Life

The Light Up a Life memorial service for 2020 will be held live online on December 8 at 6 pm on this site instead of an in-person event due to COVID-19. We will provide the link to watch live when it gets closer to the date. 

Light Up a Life symbolizes and supports Hospice work by providing a visual reminder of your loved ones throughout the holidays. Lights on the tree are a memorial and represent contributions to support the mission of Hospice of Pella. It reflects the true spirit of Christmas giving throughout the season. Call 641-620-5050 for more information.

If you would like to be a part of this year's Light Up A Life, please fill in the registration form and return to Deb Borton, our Foundation Director.
