MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Last week, Governor Kay Ivey (R-Ala.) announced her "Light Up Friday Nights" campaign.
The campaign calls on Alabamians to raise awareness for and pay tribute to healthcare workers for their continued work against COVID-19 by leaving on their porch lights every Friday night in October.
"We're lighting up Friday nights for our heroes, I'm continually amazed at the dedication of health care employees who work all year long to care for us and who during tough times, such as COVID, only seem to work harder," said Ivey. "We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for the countless hours they've spend at hospitals, clinics, and other facilities saving lives and helping to prevent the spread of this virus."
"Light Up Friday Nights" is a joint campaign between the Governor's Office, the Alabama Hospital Association, the Alabama Department of Education, the Council for Leaders in Alabama's Schools, the Alabama Independent School Association, the Alabama High School Athletic Association, and the School Superintendents of Alabama.
