Carilion Celebrates the Lights of Love Christmas Tree

The new Christmas tree in front of Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital is much more than a holiday decoration.  Each light symbolizes an expression of kindness through the Carilion Clinic Foundation's Lights of Love campaign.  A donation to Lights of Love "purchases" a light on the tree and an ornament in honor of a friend or loved one.  The money raised will pay for hotel rooms for patients' families who travel long distances and need a place to stay.
