Lights for Life Initiative Funds Care Bears for Kids
Owensboro Health Foundation is proud to support the children in our community!
Lights for Life is Owensboro Health Foundation’s holiday season tribute project. It allows donors to sponsor a light in honor or in memory of a loved one while benefiting the Care Bears for Kids program. Thousands of kids visit Owensboro Health's surgery and emergency departments each year. To provide a little comfort in an often distressing time, Owensboro Health Foundation provides calming and reassuring stuffed animals to children receiving medical care.
Thank you to all our generous donors that make this possible and to those who joined us for the tree lighting. To view the online tribute book, visit OwensboroHealth.org/LightsforLife.
