Honor Your Loved Ones with Lights of Love

For the 29th year, the Auxiliary of Mercy Health – Springfield Regional Medical Center presents Lights of Love, a touching tribute opportunity that honors loved ones over the holidays.

For a minimum donation of $5, the Auxiliary places loved ones’ names on snowflake ornaments that decorate one of the Christmas trees brightening the garden level of Springfield Regional Medical Center throughout the holiday season. With the pandemic forcing the cancellation of the Auxiliary’s fundraising events, gifts of all sizes are especially welcome this year.

“Even though we are staying apart to stay safe, we can still join together to celebrate those we love at Christmas,” said Theresa Silvers, Auxiliary President Elect and Lights of Love event co-chair. “They offer a unique way to honor family, friends and people who’ve made a difference in your life. You can also purchase an ornament to commemorate special events. Best of all, your purchases benefit patients and the community of Clark County.”

Please call the Volunteer Services office at 937-523-5190 to request an order form in the mail.

Purchasers may collect their Lights of Love Celebration ornaments before December 23 or after January 5. Please call the Volunteer Services office to arrange for ornament pick up.
