Hospice of Hilo seeking volunteers


Hospice of Hilo is looking for volunteers to help with its 23rd annual Light Up a Life hosted by Macy’s at the Prince Kuhio Plaza from Nov. 23 to Dec. 24.

“Each year, during the holiday season, we set up a Tree of Remembrance at each of the two Macy’s entrances in the mall to allow the community to honor loved ones by hanging a personalized commemorative ornament on the tree,” said Hospice of Hilo Volunteer Manager, Pearl Lyman.

“The ornaments are a symbolic connection with our loved ones and a reminder that they remain alive in our hearts,” she said.

Community volunteers are needed to provide support at the tables from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and are scheduled to provide service in 2-3 hour shifts.

“Volunteers are a vital to the Annual Light Up a Life, for over 22 years they have been at the tables 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 these wonderful people,” Lyman said.

To volunteer at any one of the Trees of Remembrance, call Lyman at 969-1733.
