The Harnett Health Auxiliary is hosting the 18th annual Lights of Love program.
“The Lights of Love program provides a way for area residents to remember a loved one during this holiday season by purchasing a light that will be placed on a Christmas tree either at Betsy Johnson Hospital or Central Harnett Hospital,” said Barbara Bynum, Harnett Health Auxiliary President. “A tag will be placed on the light and the tag may be personalized in honor or in memory of someone. The tags will be on display through the holidays and then the purchaser may take home the tag after the New Year as a keepsake.”
The lights are $5 each for one name or $10 each for a couple and may be purchased through December 24 at Betsy’s Gift Shoppe in the lobby of Betsy Johnson Hospital in Dunn or at the front reception desk at Central Harnett Hospital in Lillington. Cash and personal checks will be accepted for payment. Funds raised will be used by the Harnett Health Auxiliary to support health system projects.
“The Auxiliary hopes the community will join us in this effort,” continued Bynum. “We feel strongly about providing a meaningful way for our friends and neighbors to remember loved ones during this special time of year.”
Lights of Love Celebrations
Two Lights of Love Celebrations will take place in early December when the name of each person remembered through the purchase of a light will be read aloud. Also, during the celebration at Betsy Johnson Hospital, 2nd graders from Harnett Primary School will provide entertainment by singing Christmas carols. The public is invited to attend.

There are many ways to share skills and talents to help others by volunteering with Harnett Health. Volunteers are needed seven days a week for morning, afternoon and evening duties. People are currently needed at Betsy Johnson Hospital and Central Harnett Hospital. Some of the ways volunteers help include making toys for sick children, working in the gift shop at Betsy Johnson Hospital, greeting visitors at the hospitals’ information desks, performing clerical work, and helping at health system events. Volunteers can choose whether or not they have patient contact. People 18 and older may volunteer and high school students are eligible through a special student volunteer program. Please contact Amanda Faircloth at 910-892-1000 x4088 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to apply to be a volunteer with Harnett Health.
