Green Bay – The volunteer partners for HSHS St. Vincent, St. Mary’s, St. Nicholas and St. Clare Memorial Hospitals invite their communities to participate in Love Lights, an annual Christmas fundraiser for the not-for-profit hospitals.
With Love Lights, people can honor a loved one by having their name placed next to a lit Christmas tree at the hospital of their choice. On Friday, Dec. 11, from 2:30 to 3 p.m., a blessing of these trees and all those being honored will take place virtually at all four hospital locations. The trees will remain on display throughout the Christmas season.
“This is a special way to honor a loved one who may be receiving care at our hospitals, or who have passed and are dearly missed, “said Mary Salm, Director, Spiritual Care, HSHS Wisconsin. “It also is a way to help our hospitals, which are part of a not-for-profit, Catholic-based health care system, to continue to provide health, healing and hope to all we serve.”
You can participate with a donation online or with a check via mail. All information for each hospital’s Love Lights event can be found at the following sites:
