A local group of students from Japan are holding a Candlelight Vigil Friday night, March 18, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Pioneer Square. They hope to raise awareness and pray for their country and the victims of the 2011 Sendai earthquake and tsunami.
Donations will be taken at the vigil and will go to Mercy Corps' relief efforts in Japan. You can also make donations online here. If you are able, please bring a wax-free and non-colored candle to the vigil. Pioneer Square is located on SW 6th between SW Yamhill and Morrison.
