This year’s Love Light campaign is underway at Stephens County Hospital.
Love Light is the annual fundraising campaign organized by the Stephens County Hospital Auxiliary.
This year also marks the first year of the merging between the Hospital Auxiliary and the Stephens County Hospital Foundation.
Foundation Director Pamela Jones said that while fundraising for Love Light takes place throughout the year, this is the time of the year when they really gear up the fundraising efforts.
“The managers of all the departments in the hospital have the opportunity to submit Love Light requests to us,” said Jones. ”What we do is we have a campaign and we raise money for (purchasing) the equipment in the hospital.”
The goal this year is $12,000.
The Love Light campaign culminates every year with the annual Love Light Tree Ceremony, where Stephens County Hospital lights a large Christmas tree with all of the lights on the tree representing family members or friends that are being honored or memorialized.
This year’s Love Light Tree Ceremony will take place on Thursday, December 5 at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria of Stephens County Hospital.
That event is open to the public.
Envelopes to make a donation to this year’s Love Light campaign are available at StephensCountyHospital or an envelope can be requested by calling the Stephens County Hospital Foundation office at 706-282-4254.
All donations to the Love Light campaign are tax-deductible.
