Illuminate a light in memory of a lost loved one.

This holiday season, Homewood’s Community Grief Support (CGS) is giving family and friends the opportunity to celebrate the lives of lost loved ones. At at time when so many are facing grief due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other significant losses, Homewood and greater Birmingham can come together in hope and healing.

The Tree of Lights memorial will shine brightly on the corner of Oxmoor Road and Central Ave in Homewood’s Central Park. Each light of the 12-foot holiday tree will honor those we have loved and lost. 

Sponsorships can be purchased during November and December. 

Memorial Options:

  • Illuminate one light on the Tree of Lights
  • Handmade memorial luminary – a beautiful pottery luminary by Alabama artist Lisa Bunting Howard
