Thursday, Dec. 21, 5 p.m.—RUTLAND—The Homeless Prevention Center is sponsoring its 18th annual Candlelight Vigil in Depot Park on Thursday, Dec. 21 at 5 p.m.
This event is to bring attention to the tragedy of homelessness that many Vermont families and individuals endure. It’s also an opportunity to learn what’s being done in our community to reduce the risk of homelessness.
Come listen to the stories of the homeless or those formerly homeless and light a candle as symbol of your commitment to help end this heartbreak in our community.
This event is open to the public and should last about a half an hour. Candles are provided.
Please contact Deborah Hall at 802-775-9286 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions
