Community Hospice Plans Candlelight Vigil Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

MODESTO, CA (April 16, 2020) – During these unpredictable times, we often look towards others to provide us resources and support. As we are all doing our best to navigate the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, some may be feeling mental, emotional, and physical fatigue. It is important to remember that although there is much uncertainty at this time, we will get through this together. Lighting a candle is a way to honor the families that have been affected by COVID-19, our brave healthcare workers, first responders and volunteers across our nation that continue to diligently work during this crisis, as well as all of our friends and neighbors that continue to shelter-in-place to ensure the health and safety of others.

“We invite our friends and neighbors to join us as we take a moment to reflect on the past few months and those that have been affected by COVID-19,” said C. DeSha McLeod, Community Hospice President/CEO. “Lighting a candle provides us the opportunity to continue to shelter-in-place, yet come together to show our unity and gratitude for all those who continue to put their own needs aside for the sake of others.”

The Candlelight Vigil will take place on May 1, 2020 from 8:00 – 11:00 p.m. Please consider lighting a candle, placing it on your porch, driveway or in a front window, and uploading a photo of it to social media. If you feel inspired you may choose to share the name of someone you are lighting the candle in honor of. Please tag Community Hospice on Facebook at @CommunityHospiceCV and use hashtags #CommunityHospice, #STANstrong, #StanBuyMe, #LoveOurCities, #LoveMo, #inthistogether, #stancounty.
