2020 Homeless Vigil

Dec 24, 2020 | Community Events, News

This Lewiston-Auburn Vigil is part of a national movement of cities marking National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day on or near the winter solstice, the first day of winter and the longest night of the year to honor people who died while homeless during the previous year and to raise awareness about homelessness.

This year a wealth of supporters gathered along the snowy sidewalks of Main St. in Lewiston under the HOPEFUL sign. With handmade signs, electronic candles, and flashlights in hand supporters raised awareness for the homeless that had passed in 2020 and for those who might face homelessness in 2021.
