Boston, MA – Beginning in December, The Shops at Prudential Center and Prudential Tower will once again shine bright with the help of local community organizations. United South End Settlements (USES) will flip the switch to light up Boston on Dec. 28 as part of the annual 31 Nights of Light program. The top of the Prudential Tower will beam red in support of USES’ efforts to build a strong community by improving the education, health, safety and economic security of low-income individuals and families in Boston’s historic South End/Lower Roxbury neighborhoods.
The 31 Nights of Light program was introduced in 2009 to celebrate local Boston-area organizations and draw attention to the great work they do in Boston and beyond. Utilizing a state-of-the-art LED lighting system, the 51st floor of the Prudential Tower will change color daily to honor its 29 community partners.
