National Homeless Persons' Memorial Day is recognized in communities across the country December 21st, the first night of winter and longest night of the year.
Join as we gather at the State House Plaza for a 4PM candlelight vigil to honor those whose lives were shortened by homelessness and passed in 2018, recognizing the loss of those who suffered poverty and homelessness in our own community.
Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger, of Unitarian Universalist Church of Concord, will emcee the vigil which will include songs, a poem and reading, the names of those who have died this past year, and a moment of silence.
The Rise Again Outreach truck will be present to collect donations of warm winter outerwear and boots, winter socks, blankets, hand and toe warmers and batteries for those in need.
All are welcome.
