Care Partner’s annual “Light up a Life” offers community members the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one during the holiday season. Each donation lights one bulb in memory of one person on our memory tree, which will be located downtown in front of the Johnson Heritage Post. Donation forms are available at area businesses, in the November issue of Northern Wilds, download a donation form here or use the button below to make an online donation.

The Tree Lighting event will be inside the Johnson Heritage Post on Thursday, December 8th at 5:30 pm.  The evening will begin with a short ceremony of reflection and connection, followed by the lighting of the Memory Tree. Light refreshments will be served following the ceremony. If you are unable to attend, you can view the ceremony online via Zoom! Call or email us to receive the Zoom link.

Donations to Light Up a Life help support Care Partner’s palliative and end of life services in Cook County. For more information, contact Care Partners Director at 387-3788 or by email at
