The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation recently kicked-off their annual snowflake campaign. The community is invited to pay tribute to friends or family members with a gift in their honor or memory. The Foundation will then send a notification to the honorees or designated contact to make them aware of the gift.
In addition, a beautiful snowflake bearing the name of the individual being recognized is displayed in the main lobby of CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs. By the end of the campaign, the elegant, towering Christmas tree will be encircled in snowflake tributes.
This offering of the Foundation has become an annual tradition that is warmly received by donors and honorees alike. The campaign originated many years ago with donors sponsoring lights on the tree to recognize friends and loved ones. After that, luminaries were added and often lit the pathway of the Gardens at Memorial during the holiday season.
A few years ago, the luminaries were changed to snowflakes which now adorn the light-filled hospital lobby. The scene becomes enchanting with the seasonal display of the tree and snowflakes.
The recommended donation for each person honored is $25. Recognition of individuals makes a lovely seasonal gift. It is a great way to tell someone they are thought of during the holiday season and a wonderful way to pay tribute to a deceased friend or loved one.
Donations may be mailed to the Foundation or made online at the Foundation’s webpage. Please include contact information for the donor as well as the individuals to whom an acknowledgment of the recognition should be sent. Additionally, the name(s) of the individual(s) to be added to the snowflakes as well as if the gift is in honor of or memory of the person.
The Foundation’s webpage can be found by searching for the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation or call the office at 903-438-4799. The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation is an IRS 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization.
