Each August, the Collaborative holds an Annual Overdose Vigil by Candlelight to commemorate those who’ve lost their lives to an overdose. Partnering organizations attend to share resources and offer support for those affected by substance use, speakers share their stories, and the evening is concluded with a memorial slideshow.

Please come honor the individuals we have lost at the Brockton Area’s 2022 Overdose Vigil by Candlelight on Tuesday, August 30th at Massasoit Community College – in the quad.

Resources will be available starting at 6PM and the ceremony will begin at 7PM.

In the circumstance of inclement weather, the event will be held the following day, Wednesday, August 31st, same time – same place. If the rain date is utilized, there will be a public announcement made by 12PM on August 30th on our Facebook page: @BrocktonAreaPreventionCollaborative.

To those that are grieving, come find a safe space to remember your loved ones. To those that are in recovery, come share your strength and hope for your community. To those that are still struggling, come be with others who are there to stand in solidarity with you so that you may know that you are not alone. And to the rest of the community, please come together to honor those that we have lost and their loved ones.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.

Do your part and support these unrecognised responders by pushing for change today.
