National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service
DEC. 21: National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service in Tacoma
A local gathering commemorating National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day will be held again this year in Tacoma. Local observances are held on this day in hundreds of cities in 30 states. Chaplain Ed Jacobs is partnering with AM and Shiloh Baptist Church to host a gathering at the church at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 21. That day is winter solstice, and the longest night of the year; therefore it is an appropriate time to remember those who died unsheltered during the past year. We encourage you and your congregation to join us to shine a light on this ongoing tragedy.
