Love Lights Program

LoveLightsThe Love Lights program is in honor of our patients, families, staff, volunteers and the community that supports us. Our Love Lights trees are the center of our celebration. Each single light shares a gentle glow, while together creating a shining brilliance of hope for all. We  remember our loved ones, our patients and the families we serve.

Please join Hospice of Mercy for the Love Lights event each December for cocoa, cookies and the lighting of trees at the Dennis and Donna Oldorf Hospice House of Mercy (315 18th Avenue, Hiawatha, Iowa).

Each light will signify a gracious gift of any amount of your choice. These contributions throughout the year will allow us to continue to serve patients and their families in our community who are traveling their final journey.
