COTS Vigil Calls Attention to Homelessness During the Holidays

From NBC: Neighbors joined state officials, including Gov.-elect Phil Scott, and faith leaders on Church Street for the Committee on Temporary Shelter’s 20th annual homeless vigil. “I came here because I think that everyone should have food and warmth in Vermont,” said 10-year-old Myriam Huener, who sang at the vigil as part of the Edmunds Elementary School choir. U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy was the first to light a candle and share a story about the people COTS has helped. “We light a candle for Sadie, who couch-surfed for seven months, while she worked three jobs to make sure her 7-year-old son, who was staying with family, could enjoy school,” said Leahy. Participants say the vigil reminds them of the hundreds struggling every day in Vermont. Read more here.
