RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The McShin Foundation is holding a vigil at a Richmond church to remember the live lost to substance abuse in 2017.

The “White Marker Project” at Celebration Church and Outreach Ministry features 3,500 white crosses, representing the number of Virginians who died from substance abuse.

"You see the number a lot, and then you actually have something tangible to show ... it really brings it into perspective for us," said Gregory Jones, McShin Foundation.

Candle-lighting ceremony details:

  • Celebration Church and Outreach Ministry
  • 5501 Midlothian Turnpike
  • Saturday, Dec. 30
  • 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
