TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – People of all faiths gathered at Evergreen Cemetery’s Pima County lot to remember and pray for the more than 250 people who died homeless in Southern Arizona’s streets and deserts this year.

Peggy Hutchison, CEO of the Primavera Foundation, said Friday afternoon that it’s important to hold such a service because the holidays are all about family and many of the area’s homeless likely died alone.
