WESTON - Dozens of people planned to show up to Sunday's vigil. Community members brought balloons, ribbons and of course, candles.
Dollar Tree Store Manager Cheryl Butterfield stepped in to make sure there were plenty of supplies.
"It's really nice and great the way people are coming out to help each other it really touches my heart. And I hope it touches everyone else's too," said Butterfield.
Butterfield doesn't know any of the victims personally but that didn't stop her from helping the friends and families of the victims out of her own pocket.
"I lived here all my life and this is such a tight knit community. Somewhere along the line you have a connection to one if not all the victims," said Butterfield.
The vigil took place at Kennedy Park in Weston, just around the corner from the local Target.
Similar to Butterfield, the store manager of Target Kimm Vandenhuevel, believes giving back to the community is crucial in a time of need and pain.
"I just think its import to show that support," said Vandenhuevel.
Vandenhuevel says she allowed members of the vigil to park in Target's parking lot and use its restrooms.
"They are more than welcome to use what we offer so they can attend the event," said Vandenhuevel.
Both store managers believe there's nothing that can break the bond this community has.
"If this little bit can make things a little easier that's all I ask for," said Butterfield.
