You can show your support for migrant children and families being detained in Berks County at a vigil being led by Pilgrim’s Mennonite Church from 3:30-4:30 p.m., Sunday, April 23, at the Berks County Residential Center, 1040 Berks Road, Leesport, PA 19533. Parking is across the street from the center. Vigils are being held monthly to show those detained inside that they are not forgotten.
