Christmas Carol Sing Dec. 6 to feed area’s hungry
Celebrate the holidays and help feed the hungry by singing at the 31st Annual Christmas Carol Sing sponsored by First Presbyterian Church and the Galloway Family of Dealerships.
The Christmas Carol Sing will be Tuesday, Dec. 6 at First Presbyterian Church, 2438 Second St. in downtown Fort Myers, between Lee Street and Royal Palm Avenue. Admission is free, although organizers request voluntary donations of at least two cans of non-perishable food for Sam’s Community Café and Kitchen operated by Community Cooperative, and a voluntary cash donation, if you can.
Because of the overwhelming popularity of the event, two sing-alongs are planned at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. The doors will open 30 minutes prior to show time.
Community Cooperative is an innovative nonprofit organization made up of social service entrepreneurs fighting to end homelessness and hunger in our community.
“The need has never been greater with so many people struggling after the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian. The food that is donated will go immediately to those in our community who desperately need it,” said First Presbyterian pastor Dr. Paul deJong.
Cash donations are especially needed because Community Cooperative can buy five times as much food for the same amount of money that residents spend at local grocery stores.
The Christmas Carol Sing is a festival of holiday music and family fun. This year’s 90-minute performance will feature the First Presbyterian Church Choir, soloists and other special guests singing favorite holiday carols with audience sing-a-longs.
There is a strong rumor that Santa Claus will be making a surprise visit for the “children in all of us.”
