In the heart of St. Louis, a radiant tradition is about to take center stage on Oct 1st, starting at 10 a.m., through October 10th. “Light Up The Night,” a community-building campaign, is set to cast a warm, purple glow across neighborhoods, fostering a sense of togetherness, remembrance, and action.
And the concept is simple yet profound: residents participate by replacing their regular porch light bulbs with purple ones during the first 10 days of October. In addition, this simple act serves as a remembrance and honor for those who have been lost to addiction and violence. It’s a poignant reminder of the lives impacted by these pressing issues.
Moreover, “Light Up The Night” is more than just a visual display; it’s a call to action. The purple lights not only symbolize awareness but also serve as a catalyst for family and community building activities. It’s a collective effort to promote solutions, foster unity, and strengthen the bonds within neighborhoods.
Graciously, this heartwarming event is orchestrated by Better Family Life, Inc., a dedicated 501(C)3 not-for-profit community development corporation based in St. Louis. Their mission is to stabilize inner-city neighborhoods, and “Light Up The Night” is a shining example of their commitment to uplifting communities.
As the purple lights illuminate the night, they also illuminate hope. “Light Up The Night” is an invitation for every resident to be part of something bigger, to remember, to honor, and to take action. It’s a reminder that together, we can make our communities safer, more united, and filled with love and compassion. Join the movement and light up your porch this October to be a part of this inspiring campaign.
