Fort HealthCare launches Love Lights campaign
FORT ATKINSON -- Fort HealthCare Partners will again hold its Love Light Tree project.
Each year, Fort HealthCare Partners select a project at Fort Memorial Hospital to support through the sale of Love Lights and celebrate with a special tree lighting event.
The appeal for 2018 is two-fold: $10,000 is needed to help fund scholarships for area students pursuing degrees in the health care field, and $5,000 is needed for the CareLine Program to provide services for emergency medical alarm equipment for indigent clients in the Fort HealthCare service area.
By donating $2 or more, a Love Light on a tree outside the hospital can be purchased as a gift to honor or remember a loved one. Colored lights are intended to honor someone special, while white lights serve as memorials for loved ones who have passed away. Special cards are available, upon request, to notify the person or family of someone being remembered that a light has been purchased in their honor.
Love Lights can be purchased online, with a minimum $5 donation required. An online purchase will also generate a personalized certificate that can be shared with loved ones to notify them of the donation.
Love Lights can also be purchased in person from any of the locations where Partners members will be selling Love Lights, or in the gift shop/main lobby of Fort Memorial Hospital during normal business hours.
Love Lights can also be ordered by mail. Order forms can be found at FortHealthCare.com/LoveLights. Send a check to Love Lights, Fort HealthCare Partners, 611 Sherman Ave. E., Fort Atkinson, WI 53538. Specify a colored or white light and include the name(s) and address of the person(s) being honored or the family of the individual being remembered.
Donations of $25 or more are recognized as Love Light Tree sponsors. All donations and sponsors will be acknowledged in December. To ensure recognition as a sponsor in this year’s listings, donations must be received by Dec. 7.
The campaign will be celebrated with a tree lighting ceremony Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 6:30 p.m. on the Fort Memorial Hospital grounds, near the Sherman Avenue entrance. The event will include a seasonal message, special music, refreshments and a visit from Elsa and Olaf from “Frozen.”
