We want to thank the hundreds of people who attended the candlelight vigil last night! And to all of our speakers, thank you for being so brave and sharing your stories. It was an amazing night. We were overwhelmed. We would also like to thank the Brockton Area Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative. Their organizational expertise, passion and funding supports not only Rockland CARES but many other coalitions and their initiatives. Support from the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office and the Brockton Area Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative allow events like this vigil to become a reality.”
What a powerful community! #RocklandCARES

"I've been trying to put into words my thoughts on last night's vigil. I'm just not sure there are words great enough to express the feeling of the night. It was palpable. Holy family church holds 600 people and when I looked around that room, I could count the number of empty seats. That's incredible. There was a moment, hundreds of candles were lighting up union street, cars stopped to watch in awe and together we sang Amazing Grace. In that moment Rockland and Rockland CARES silenced all the naysayers. Yes, we are a town to be proud of. Yes, we are ending the stigma. And yes, Rockland Cares! A huge thank you to all of the hundreds of people who attended last night. It was a humbling experience to stand in front of you."
