La Puente holds Winter Vigil


La Puente’s annual Winter Vigil was Thursday, Jan. 19, at 6 p.m. in front of the Shelter. Over 20 people attended, remembering the folks in the community who passed away while experiencing homelessness. Amanda Pearson, La Puente’s Interim Executive Director, spoke on the importance of remembering the influence our folks had in our community. This was followed by the lighting of candles and a special moment in memory where members of the audience shared memories after the names were read.
