Wear Blue for Child & Teen Grief Awareness Day – Thursday, November 20

Nevada State Governor Brian Sandoval has proclaimed Nov. 20, 2014 as Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day. In honor of Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day, The Solace Tree is holding a fun, family event at The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows William N. Pennington Facility on Thursday, Nov. 20. Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day is designed to help society become more aware of the needs of grieving children and teens, and the benefits they obtain from the support of others. Observed on the Thursday before Thanksgiving each year, Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day is intentionally set in the holiday season, often a particularly difficult time for those grieving the loss of a loved one.

“It’s a day focused on remembering the children and teens all around us who have experienced the death of a loved one,” explains Emilio Parga, executive director of The Solace Tree. “Families often feel more alone during the holidays and this a reminder to reach out to them and let them know they haven’t been forgotten.”

In commemoration of Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day, individuals are asked to wear blue on Thursday, Nov. 20. That day, The Solace Tree is holding a celebration at The Boys & Girls Club including carnival games from Circus Circus, food from Port of Subs, music provided by Wild 102.9FM, arts and crafts, free fingerprinting from New York Life and more. Mostly, they’ll be celebrating the people, businesses and groups that participate in Child and Teen Grief Awareness
