Candle campaign works to prevent child abuse


WALLA WALLA — The local chapter of Children’s Home Society is raising awareness of emotional, physical and sexual child abuse and neglect with its annual Candle of Hope campaign. People can show support for children by displaying candles or luminaries at their home or business during the holidays, and attending the annual Downtown Luminary Lighting on Monday, 5-8 p.m.

Candles and luminaries are being sold at the Children’s Home Society office, 1612 Penny Lane. Proceeds will go to Exchange Parent Aide Program, a local child abuse-prevention program.
