All are invited to Light a Luminary on Sunday, December 6, at 4:30 p.m. at their homes  Participants may honor loved ones by writing their names and/or a message on a luminary bag and lighting a candle within. Participants can place the candle on the porch of your home.

The event is sponsored by JTConnect, the township’s mental health organization. It provides an enlightened way to reflect, to remember loved ones lost, and to bring hope for all those affected by suicide.

The goals of JTConnect are to change minds about mental health, achieve greater results, break down barriers, promote positive reinforcement, discover solutions, and make an impact in the community: “Together we can.”

If you would like to share your luminary, take a picture of it and send it to jeffersontownshipconnect@gmail.com. Photos will be posted to JTConnect’s social media.

If you know someone is in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline toll-free at 800-273-TALK (8255), 24 hours a day year round. There is hope.
