Lighting of the Candelarias

Our December event will be “Lighting of the Candelarias”, public displays of lighted candelarias (the traditional paper bags weighted by sand and lit by LED lights) created by our clients, children and adults who have survived domestic violence. We honor them for finding a path out of the darkness to a new life filled with light. YWCA-MC will set up the candelarias in a designated space at various venues and also provide tables and staff collect donations for our Domestic Violence Services. Planned locations are Del Monte Center in Monterey, Northridge Mall in Salinas, Downtown Square in Old Town Salinas and some city centers in South County. Dates and times to be determined.
