Covenant House Michigan to host candlelight vigil Thursday

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- FOX 2's Amy Lange will host the Covenant House's 15th annual candlelight vigil on Thursday, Nov. 15.

The event will take place at the main campus on 2959 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Detroit.

The vigil, which coincides with National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, was created by CHM to bring awareness to the issue of youth homelessness and CHM's tireless commitment to the young people they serve each and every day.

The teens that come to CHM are not homeless because they spent their lives making bad decisions; they are homeless because of abuse, mental illness or neglect.

For more information about CHM's Candlelight Vigil Against Youth Homelessness, ways to get involved and help homeless youth call (313) 463-2005 or visit www.covenanthousemi.org.

    Parents and teachers know school supplies don't come cheap. Many teachers even buy school supplies out-of-pocket. But now, a new Detroit company is doing more than selling school supplies - they're also giving back.
