Green Bay – The Partners of HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Hospitals invite the community to participate in Love Lights, an annual Christmas fundraiser.
Love Lights offers people the opportunity to purchase a light in memory of a loved one, and then have it placed on a Christmas tree at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital or HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay. The names the lights shine for are also displayed next to the trees throughout the holiday season.
Order forms can be found by the Love Lights displays in the hospital lobbies or gift shops. Forms must be completed and returned with a donation by Thursday, Dec. 20. They can be returned in-person to the gift shops, or mailed to:
