MIDDLEBURY — John Graham Housing and Services’s sixth annual candlelight vigil and sleep out will be held in Middlebury on December 7, to raise awareness and resources to help end homelessness.

The vigil will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the Middlebury Green by St. Stephen’s Church, followed by a dinner at St. Stephen’s community hall.

Community members can participate by sleeping out, donating, becoming a fundraiser, or attending the vigil.

Campers will be able to spend the night in their tents at the Marble Works on the banks of the Otter Creek above the Middlebury Falls.

Every dollar raised goes directly to housing for homeless families and individuals.

The previous vigil ensured that more than 300 people, a third of them children, felt the warmth and well being of having a home.
