COVID-19 has claimed millions of lives since the start of the pandemic and the death toll has continued to rise this year. During the holiday season, those absences will be deeply felt. Therefore these holidays, NPRs All together invites you to share memories of your lost loved ones with us so we can honor them with a memory.

If there is anyone – a family member, friend, colleague or community member – who has passed away this year from the coronavirus and won’t be sitting at your table, please tell us using the form below. We encourage you to share as much detail as possible.

An NPR producer may contact you for an upcoming memorial on the air or online.
