The Volunteer Partners of HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital will honor and memorialize loved ones during the annual Love Lights tree lighting ceremony in December.
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 will see those lights glow from the trees outside the front entrances of the hospitals through the Christmas season.
The tree lighting ceremonies will take place in the healing garden outside the hospitals’ main entrances:
Dec. 5, 5 p.m.
HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital, 900 W. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire
38th annual event
Dec. 7, 4:30 p.m.
HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital, 2661 Hwy. I, Chippewa Falls
36th annual event
The purchase of each $10 light helps the hospitals, which are part of a nonprofit, Catholic-based health care system, continue providing health, healing and hope to all they serve. The donations will also support the hospital Volunteer Partners’ on-going efforts to improve the lives of patients and community members though scholarships and school and community events. Each colored light honors a special soul.
