Hospice Tree of Lights Lit Up

Posted: Updated:

The 28th Hospice of Wichita Falls Tree of Lights Campaign is under way.

Tuesday night Hospice Executive Director Alisa Echols gave the command and the tree lit for the first time this holiday season.

The Tree of Lights goal this year is to raise $200,000 for care for Hospice patients. That amount is something Echols says the non-profit has to have to keep providing care.

"This is our biggest fundraiser. Just last year we provided $430,000 worth of care to people who didn't have medicaid, medicare or private insurance," said Echols. "This year we've already surpassed that amount. So it is vital for us to reach that goal so we don't ever have to deny hospice care to anybody in need."

The star on top of the tree has been turned off. It will only be lit again on December 13th if the $200,000 goal is reached.
