Enjoy holiday music and help feed a family

 

It's hard to think about the fact that some parents working one or even two jobs will still struggle to feed their families this holiday season. If feeding a family was as easy as purchasing a new holiday CD, would you help? The Agape Community Center at 25th and Florist in Thurston Woods have found a fun way to bring people together and fund their Community Meals Program through music. " Sing For Your Supper was created 8 years ago," says Al Luzi, director of development at the Agape Community Center. "It's a project that feeds people. You support local artists, you support high schools and you feed someone too. It doesn't get much better than that."

 

For the last 8 years, local artists and musicians have donated their time to put together a variety of holiday songs for the Sing For Your Supper cd project. "Marquette University, Divine Savior Holy Angels both had very good choirs," explains Luci. He says those high schools were the first to donate their time for this holiday fundraiser and can be found on all the cd's since. Local artists Chris Crain, Grace Weber and 88nine's own Sarah Fierek have contributed tracks. Agape will produce 1000 of these cds, which are available between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, raising $20,000 to feed families in need this year. That's a lot of holiday meals.
