Health Care Foundation’s Annual Snowflake Campaign is Underway

November 28, 2023 – Sulphur Springs, TX – The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation is ready to decorate the main CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs lobby with hundreds of snowflakes this holiday season.  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 card to notify the honorees or designated contacts to make them aware of the gift.  

A beautiful hand-cut snowflake bearing the name of the individual being recognized will be displayed in the main lobby of CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs.  By the end of the campaign, the lobby will be a flurry of snowflakes.

The Christmas campaign is an annual tradition that is warmly received by donors and honorees alike.  Considered part of the Lights of Life campaign, the tradition originated many years ago with donors sponsoring lights on the tree to recognize friends and loved ones.  After that, luminarias were added and often lit the pathway of the Gardens at Memorial during the holiday season.

Three years ago, the luminarias were changed to snowflakes which now are dotted along the windows and glass walls of the hospital lobby.  The snowflakes add to the magical scene of the 12-foot-tall Christmas tree which is elaborately adorned in gold baubles. 

The recommended donation for each person honored is $25 or more.  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 Snowflake campaign webpage  Please include contact information for the donor as well as the individuals to whom notification should be mailed.  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.

For more information, visit or call the Foundation office at 903-438-4799.
