Please email Forgotten Voice at if you have any donations of nonperishable food, warm clothes, sleeping bags, blankets, and hygiene items.

Saturday, December 13th you are invited to help sort and bag
items for distribution after the Vigil. The sorting will also take place at Christ the King Church.

After The Vigil, "Straight From the Streets" will go around the valley and hand out supplies to any homeless or needy person we come across.

Someone once said: "No one is truly dead until they are forgotten." "Do you ever get afraid of death? Death is your friend. When this long hard journey is over, and I'm too tired to go on, Death will say, "I understand." "Then there'll be no more trouble, no more pain."
