When Carilion Clinic lights its outdoor Christmas tree in Roanoke next week, the ceremony will take on special meaning as part of a “Lights of Love” campaign. You can honor the memory of a loved one by purchasing a symbolic light on the tree. Shanna Flowers, Carilion’s manager of volunteer services, says the money raised will go to assist out-of-towners who have relatives facing a long hospital stay. She says it’s designed to lift their spirits by giving them a hot shower and night’s rest in a hotel room.
