ALMH’s Annual Light Up A Life Campaign Begins
LINCOLN – The annual Light Up A Life campaign at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital is now underway.
Families and individuals may send tribute gifts in memory of someone who has passed before, or in honor of persons still living. The suggested donation amount is $10 per name. Proceeds benefit patient care at ALMH.
Names received prior to November 30 are compiled and presented in a special Lincoln Courier insert published on Christmas Eve. The names of those honored or memorialized will be prominently listed, followed by names of the donors who gave in their name.
New this year, Lincoln Daily News will feature a searchable, online database of Light Up A Life names, available from late December through the end of January 2008.
“Donors may choose how
their Light Up A Life gifts are used to benefit patients at Abraham
Lincoln Memorial Hospital,” say campaign co-chairs Brad and Carolyn
Neal of Lincoln. “Designated recipients this year are the Medical
Technologies Fund, which helps in the purchase of medical equipment
for patients at ALMH, or the ALHF Endowment Fund that provides
unrestricted support for future ALMH projects.”
Donors may send Light Up A Life gifts to ALHF at 315 8th Street in Lincoln.
More information about the campaign, including a link to a secure online giving form, is available at www.almh.org.
