Take a child out of the darkness of abuse
Tree Lighting Celebration | December 1, 2019 | 6 - 7pm
First Presbyterian Church, 531 S. College Ave, Fort Collins
Every holiday season the big blue NightLights tree located in the courtyard at First Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Mulberry & College in Fort Collins, lights up the night bringing awareness to the issues of child abuse and neglect and letting the children impacted know they are not alone.
In addition to lighting the tree on December 1st and raising awareness of the issues of child abuse, NightLights is the largest fundraising campaign of Realities For Children, running from November 1 thru December 31 each year. The 2018 campaign raised a record-breaking $190,000 to meet the needs of children who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk in our community.
