Owensboro Health Foundation Sponsors Lights For Life
There is no better time than the holiday season to open your heart and touch the lives of those who need it most in our community.
Through Lights for Life a holiday season tribute project sponsored by the Owensboro Health Foundation you can make someones day brighter. The project will benefit Care Bears for Kids and Baby Boxes for Infants in Need.
Care Bears for Kids has provided comforting bears to children in our community when they come to the hospital for surgery or emergencies. This program has given over 6,000 bears.
Baby Boxes for Infants in Need provides baby items for new mothers when they head home from the hospital. These items are things that they may not have in their home. Some items include; diapers, bibs, sleepers, blankets
You're invited to participate in Lights for Life by purchasing a symbolic light, in honor or memory of a loved one. The lights make a thoughtful gift, and are a way of expressing your appreciation for those you love and cherish: friends, family, school teachers, physicians, ministers, coaches, co-workers, or anyone who has held a special place in your heart. A card will be mailed telling of your kindness. The name of the person you honor through a light will also be displayed on the Lights for Life Tribute Book online and will be displayed in the Messenger-Inquirer on Sunday, December24th.
In this season of giving, we hope you will remember your friends and loved ones through your contribution to Lights for Life, and help support children and infants in need in our community.
