Friends of VMH Lovelights

Sponsor a Lovelight in memory of a loved one who has passed, or to honor an individual during the holiday season.  All of the funds raised will go to the Friends of VMH, a volunteer network who fund Healthcare Scholarships, Medical Equipment Purchases, and so much more!

Lovelights are $5 each, and you can purchase your Lovelight by filling out the Lovelight envelope located at the VMH Dropbox locations in the Hospital Lobby or MOB lobby and sticking it in the dropbox, or, completing this form and sending it in with payment to VMH Foundation, 507 S Main Street, Viroqua, WI 54665.
