VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Light up a Life, an organization benefitting South Georgia Medical Center, is offering you a way to honor your loved ones while giving back to the community.  

The Foundation has placed a Love Light Tree in the hospital lobby. For a donation of 15 dollars or more, you can honor a loved one or memorialize one who has died. A personalized hand-made ornament will be placed on the tree with that person's name. Their name will also be printed in a book of honor.

All proceeds benefit the hospital's Neonatal Unit.

"The Love Light Tree is an excellent opportunity during the Christmas or holiday season for someone to give a gift to somebody who they don't know what to buy for," says foundation director, Elizabeth Vickers.  "Often times if you draw names at work or have a grandmother you've lost, or a sister whose birthday you'd like to honor."

This unique gift idea will be greatly beneficial the South Georgia Medical Center.  This year's proceeds will purchase an interactive Neonatal Simulator.  

For more information, you can call (229) 249-4080, Extension 7.

Or, you can visit www.sgmc.org.  Click on the Light Up a Life! link.
