Stephens City Out of the Darkness Experience
5 October 2020
We pre-recorded today’s conversation via Zoom with Rusty Holland, Director of Concern Hotline and Winter Brooks, organizer of Stephens City Out of the Darkness Experience happening both virtually and with a limited in-person option on Saturday, October 10, 2020.
Rusty explained the history of Concern Hotline, how it operates and told us about the types of calls they typically receive. Concern Hotline is a free 24/7/365 anonymous information & referral, crisis intervention, and suicide prevention hotline serving the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. You can get details for making a donation, signing up to volunteer, or to access their local numbers on their website: https://concernhotline.org/
Winter told us about her connection to the Out of the Darkness Walk and how it came to become a local event at Sherando Park in Stephens City. She explained how the event will change this year to an Out of the Darkness “Experience” (because of the pandemic) and encouraged people to participate via their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OOTDStephensCity or by walking in small groups on October 10, 2020.
