Newton, NC – This year has certainly had its challenges. The pandemic has changed the way we hold our loved ones close and the way healthcare professionals provide care to their patients. It has also made it more difficult to celebrate the lives of our loved ones after they have passed away.

Carolina Caring invites the community to participate in its first “Light Up a Life” celebration designed to bring together caregivers, healthcare workers, volunteers, donors, loved ones and friends to celebrate someone special who has made an impact in their lives by purchasing a luminary in their honor.

Contributors are then invited to drive around Carolina Caring’s Robinson Road campus in Newton, North Carolina on Tuesday, December 22 to experience the beauty of the luminaries aglow in special tribute to loved ones.

Luminaries are $10 each. For more information, please visit You may also contact [email protected] or call 828.466.0466, extension 2357.
