PARKLAND, Fla. -- At Pine Trails Park, volunteers have been setting up for hours.

They’re preparing for crowds that could reach 5,000 for an interfaith service Thursday evening remembering victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting one year ago.

The group Hands On Broward has set up a special memorial with each of the victims’ faces and names.

Each of the 17 victims is honored with a panel put together by a massive outpouring of love and support in the days following the shooting.

Tens of thousands of volunteers called to help. So the group said “show me your heart."

"We asked people who wanted to write their feelings and you know, their wishes and their thoughts, and we have grief and whatever they wanted to say to their families," said Hands On Broward President and CEO Dale Mandell.
