Vigil at Pike Courthouse for the homeless

Pike County hands of hope plans a candlelight vigil during the night of the National Homeless People’s memorial,┬áDec. 21 at 6 p.m., on the Pike County courthouse lawn.

The vigil is meant to remember those homeless people who have died because of their lack of housing.

That evening, Pike County Hands of Hope will also collect items for local homeless and nearly homeless people. Those who are nearly homeless are facing foreclosure or eviction.

Items being collected are for hygiene kits and include toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, shaving cream, soap, men’s winter gloves, sheets, pillowcases, and gift cards from local businesses. Notes of encouragement to be placed in the kits are also appreciated. For more information about Pike County hands of hope call 570-296 HOPE (4673)
