Due to uncontrollable circumstances, we've had to cancel the event today. We have outlined the reason for the cancelation and the next steps for anyone that has already pre-ordered a lantern. You can read that here.
To the many in our community who’ve benefited from their good works, the volunteers of NeighborLink are a shining light - a beacon of care, compassion and support. Indeed, this year alone, NeighborLink volunteers have chosen to love their neighbors and help close to 600 city residents seeking assistance through our organization.
To honor those acts of support, and to celebrate these community beacons of hope, please join us as NeighborLink Fort Wayne holds our first celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. On Wednesday, November 23, we're launching hundreds of lanterns into the sky at the courthouse lawn in downtown Fort Wayne. Each lantern will symbolize a relationship developed and, just as importantly, a need met.
Each individual project may be small, but collectively, the scale and scope of their impact on our community is profound. This event and celebration gives us the chance to visualize that impact and recognize the selfless efforts of these community beacons through NeighborLink Fort Wayne.
If you've volunteered with NeighborLink, been a recipient of a volunteer service, want to learn more about our organization, or simply want to celebrate how a neighbor has helped make your community a better place to live in the past year, join us in for this celebratory event.
Help NeighborLink light the sky to kick off our season of giving.
