In observance of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the League City Police Department hosted a candlelight vigil at League Park on Wednesday night to honor the victims and survivors of domestic abuse.

Officers collected personal hygiene items as well as monetary donations for the Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County, an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse and child abuse.
