Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day (HPMD) is a national day of commemoration for anyone who passed away while experiencing homelessness. Care For the Homeless is holding its virtual memorial on Wednesday, December 16th, 2020. The memorial includes reading the names of those who have passed this year while unstably housed in NYC with a candle lit in their honor and a bell tolled in remembrance. It is a program that is free and open to the public, as an opportunity to remember and advocate for better policies to end homelessness as we know it.
We would like to recruit a volunteer band with a singer, preferably, to participate in the virtual memorial. Your team can choose to play live or send us a pre-recorded videos of two-three songs. The hope is to have moving music/song that is non-denominational to honor all those in attendance.
We are happy to provide you with any information you might need regarding the event. We look forward to working with you!
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at email@example.com.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
