Annual Fundraising Drive Lights Up ALMH


On Nov. 1, the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation launched the 32nd Annual Light Up a Life Campaign at ALMH.  Each year, thousands of individuals and groups are celebrated through a campaign inviting the community to honor those living, remember those who have passed, or show appreciation to those healthcare professionals providing great care.

“The holiday season is a special time when we celebrate with loved ones as well as honor the memories of those gone before.  The Light Up A Life campaign at ALMH provides a wonderful opportunity to support local healthcare by paying tribute to those who have and will continue to show us the way“, said ALMH Foundation Executive Director Sarah Helm.  

You can support local healthcare through the Light Up a Life Campaign by making a gift and submitting your list of tribute names between now and December 3.  The suggested donation of $10 per name may be designated to purchase medical equipment at ALMH, fund educational grants for students pursuing careers in healthcare, support Memorial Home Services Hospice Care, fund the work of the ALMH Community Health Collaborative or provide general support for future ALMH projects.

Forms are available at ALMH.  Donors may mail Light Up A Life gifts to the ALMH Foundation at 200 Stahlhut Dr. in Lincoln.  You can also make a gift online by visiting  Names received by Tuesday, December 3 will be compiled and presented in a special Lincoln Courier Christmas Eve edition insert. Each individual or group remembered will be listed in bold, followed by names of those who gave in their honor.

New Herald News and Lincoln Daily News will also feature an online presentation of names, which can be shared with friends and families near and far.

On Tuesday – December, 3, ALMH will host the 32nd Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and Soup Supper.  The event will begin at 5:30 on the ALMH Woods Patio and will include a short outdoor ceremony followed by a meal.  Seating is limited at supper so kindly RSVP by calling 217-605-5006.
