A way to honor loved ones during the Christmas season

Chippewa Falls, Wis. – The Partners of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital will honor and memorialize loved ones during the 34th annual Love Lights virtual tree lighting ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 2.

Love Lights is a special way to honor loved ones who may be receiving care at the hospital, or who are wished continued good health and happiness, or those who have passed and are dearly missed. Community members who purchase a Love Light in honor of a loved one’s name will see those lights glow from the trees outside the front entrance of the hospital beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 with a virtual tree lighting ceremony. Each colored light honors a special soul.

  • White: Deceased adult
  • Blue: Deceased child
  • Red/Green: Living relative or friend
  • Gold: Living or deceased veteran or active military member
  • Purple: Living or deceased pet

Proceeds from the purchase of each $10 light will support the hospital Partners’ on-going volunteer efforts to improve the lives of patients and community members though scholarships and year-round donation efforts.

Due to COVID-19, and the hospital’s deep concern for the health and safety of community members, this year’s tree lighting ceremony will be streamed lived on the HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Facebook page in lieu of an in-person event. 

To purchase a Love Light, or for more information, please call Brandy Sikora, volunteer services manager at 715-717-7439 or visit the hospital’s website at: www.hshs.org/stjosephschippewafalls/lovelights
