Hospice of Wichita Falls Tree of Light Campaign Enters Final Stretch

Wichita Falls, TX – Hospice of Wichita Falls is entering the final stretch in its Tree of Lights campaign. Their goal to raise money $200,000 for patient care and to provide bereavement services to Texomans.

Tricia Golding, Development and Special Events Coordinator at Hospice of Wichita Falls told Newschannel 6 it has been putting on this campaign for almost 30 years and each year the community has been generous enough to support their cause.

Hospice of Wichita Falls helps so many Texomans during their darkest times and truly believes in its mission to provide: “Care, hope, and support to all when illness threatens life.”

“All of us at Hospice of Wichita Falls knows how difficult is to pick up the phone and make that initial phone call to hospice or end of life care,” said Golding.

Saying goodbye to someone you love may be one of life's toughest challenges, and even more difficult for families when you do not know how you will take of that special one.

However, it's a sad reality Golding said many people have to face daily.

"We have so many patients that need our services and don't have a funding source,” said Golding.”

She said while hospice obtains funding for people that need them most, it is important for families to have a plan in place.

“We just encourage people to call us and get information so when that time does come for hospice or service to be necessary in one family. It's not something that they're not aware of and know what to expect," said Golding.

Here's how you can help. For just a $10 donation, you can light a light on the Hospice Tree of Lights. You can donate at United Market Street or by texting HOWF to 41444.

You can also donate in person at the Hospice office located on Johnson Road.
