Blackburn Center reschedules final Red Sand project in Mt. Pleasant
Because of inclement weather, the Blackburn Center rescheduled its final Red Sand Project event for 5 p.m.Wednesday at Excela Frick Hospital in Mt. Pleasant.
The art installation was previously set for Monday, said Karen Evans, the center’s advocacy program manager.
Earlier installations were held this month at the Westmoreland County Courthouse and Twin Lakes Park extension area, and at Excela Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg and Excela Latrobe Hospital.
The Westmoreland County Commissioners this month honored supporters of the project, which brings attention to human trafficking issues.
The county’s Human Trafficking Task Force is organizing the project, inviting volunteers to join in on shining a light on a covert crime.
Interested volunteers have helped to place the red sand at the sites.
The project, now in its third year locally, has increased requests for the center’s training to understand, watch for and report human trafficking, Evan says.
