Lights Before Christmas Brightens Up Hospitalized Kids

Alpha Media, Impact Saginaw Area Credit Unions and Covenant Kids are working together to help make the holidays a little brighter for kids who are in the hospital.

Lights Before Christmas aims to provide donated gifts to children who are hospitalized over the holidays. Every night at 7:00 P.M. from December 5 through 9 at the Covenant HealthCare parking lot at 1000 Houghton Avenue in Saginaw, people will gather to shine flashlights, glow foam tubes or anything that lights up towards the kids’ windows for two minutes. Free flashlights will be provided to the first 100 attendees each night by Impact Saginaw. A different musical act will be featured for entertainment, with cookies, hot chocolate and more.

From now through December 9, donate a new, unwrapped toy at one of several area credit unions, or bring it with you to the Lights Before Christmas events. You can also support the kids with a monetary donation at For a complete list of drop-off locations for toys, visit the WSGW Morning Team page.
