Emily’s Hope to host 5th annual overdose awareness vigil

Thursday, August 30 is International Overdose Awareness Day, a campaign around the world to end overdoses and remember those who have died. The fifth annual Emily’s Hope candlelight vigil will be held in downtown Sioux Falls as one mother knows what it’s like to lose a loved one to Fentanyl.

“It means a lot to myself and my whole family. Being part of the community and part of the process. They like being involved, they like helping it just gives everybody a sense of purpose outside of the pain,” said Diane Eide, a volunteer for Emily’s Hope.
