To Benefit Hospice of Evangelical

  • Since Hospice of Evangelical began in 1989, thousands of families have received hospice care in Union, Snyder, Northumberland, and surrounding counties.
  • Hospice care is based on providing quality of life with special focus on comfort and pain control. Registered nurses are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Hospice patients have a life-limiting illness and life expectancy of six months or less.
  • Lights of Love proceeds help Hospice of Evangelical provide compassionate care to terminally-ill patients and their families.

2023 Honoring Caregivers

Throughout the years, our Hospice of Evangelical staff and volunteers have been touched by the patients, families, and caregivers we have met. Each person who has cared for a loved one, gives of themselves to ensure physical care is provided, autonomy respected, and the last phase of life lived to the fullest.

The 2023 Lights of Love Honorary Chairperson is Ruth Cantiluppi, whose husband Carl, received his care through Hospice of Evangelical. Professionally, Carl studied and researched agriculture and worked as an Extension Agent, focusing on asparagus. The Hospice staff who cared for Carl, witnessed his love for agriculture and helped him manage his care so he could continue doing what he loved. While Carl and Ruth navigated their hospice journey, they accepted the support of the social worker, nurses, aides, and volunteers to meet their changing physical and emotional needs. As their needs changed, Ruth found comfort in knowing that help was just a phone call away and appreciated the emotional support staff and volunteers provided to her as a grieving wife.

We hope you will join us in honoring our caregivers and their loved ones who were impacted by the Hospice of Evangelical care experience. Your gift to Lights of Love will help Hospice of Evangelical continue to provide compassionate end-of-life care for our patients, and much-needed support services for families and caregivers. 

The Lights of Love tree will be lit at Hospice of Evangelical on December 3, 2023 and will remain lit throughout the month in remembrance of loved ones.
