Christmas and the holiday season can be difficult for people who have lost loved ones, especially for those who are still going through the grieving process.

The Ridge Meadows Hospice Society wants to help ease the pain in some way with their Celebrate a Life campaign.

For the campaign the public are welcome to hang an ornament on a tree in memory of a loved one or someone they might be missing this holiday season.

A tree will be located in the Ridge Meadows Hospice Thrift Store at 12011 224 Street until Saturday, Dec. 23 and the annual Celebrate a Life tree and booth will be in ValleyFair Mall from Friday, Nov. 24 until Sunday, Dec. 3.

“The holiday season can be a difficult one when you are grieving. Please do not hesitate to reach out to speak with someone and hear more about our support programs for grief and loss,” read a post by the society online.
