LEXINGTON, N.C. – (April 22, 2020) – Hospice of Davidson County has lit its luminary display – normally reserved for the holiday season – to honor its staff during this challenging time. Each night, more than 70 luminaries are lit in front of the Hinkle Hospice House on the agency’s campus representing the number of employees serving those with life-limiting illnesses.
“For years our annual luminary event has offered a way for the families served by Hospice of Davidson County and the community at-large to acknowledge their loss and honor loved ones,” said Hospice of Davidson County CEO Laura Owen.
“The luminaries serve as a visible symbol of hope, love, courage and remembrance. Those are all the expressions we want to convey to our staff who are caring for the most fragile individuals in our community who are facing end-of-life in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“During the pandemic, Hospice of Davidson County will continue to display a luminary for each of our dedicated staff members,” Owen added.
