Charlestown Overdose Vigil  (4564)

09/22/2012 6:30 PM - 09/22/2012 9:00 PM

Annual Charlestown Candlelight Vigil sponsored by Charlestown Against Drugs (CHAD). This vigil is to remember those who lost their battle with drugs and alcohol and to give hope to those struggling with addiction. CHAD is a coalition of numerous Charlestown
youth-serving organizations that has been in existence for over 20 years, most recently under the chairmanship of the late Peter Looney. CHAD’s programs aim to prevent or reduce substance abuse in the community through educational initiatives that teach about
the dangers of substance abuse and other health risk behaviors. These programs promote healthy growth and development of youth, families, and community through drug avoidance and supporting activities that encourage teamwork, cooperation, trust, self-reliance,
and self esteem. Hayes Square at 6:30 PM. For more information including how to include a picture of your loved one in the vigil, please contact Shannon Lundin (617) 320-9058.
