The Celebration of Lights trees in Fargo and Jamestown offer a unique way to honor a family member, friend or loved one and help your community at the same time.
The Tree of Hope serves as a beacon of light to help erase the stigma of mental illness and also reminds us of the need for continued advocacy for children and adults with mental health needs and their families. Your participation will support the work of Mental Health America of ND (MHAND) and ND Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health (NDFFCMH) to promote mental health and wellness for children and adults to build healthier and stronger communities throughout North Dakota.
When you purchase a light or multiple lights on the Celebration of Lights trees, each person you honor will receive a personal card recognizing your gift. You can also purchase lights as a memorial for someone to honor their memory.
Honoring others is a wonderful way to start your holiday season in the spirit of sharing and caring.
