Hunger continues throughout Delaware County and the Media Food Bank, housed at the Methodist Church on State Street supports individuals and families who need extra support and provides grocery gift certificates to them for the holidays. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County will host its 6th Benefit Concert for the food bank and hopes to raise significant funds to support them through the holidays.
Music will cover many genres and will feature local musicians featuring performances by Media based Me3 (Eclectic Americana & Pop), The Unit (Dripping Cool Jazz, R&B & Rock), Springfield’s Al & Clara Bien with Chris Adams (Folk, Americana & Blues), and annual hosts the Delco based Jean Therapy Band (Jazz-Rock & Retro Pop). Band & church members Jean Lenke, Dan McKay and Pete Bretz started the project 6 years ago and report that the concert donations really make a difference in the Food Bank’s holiday budget.
The concert starts at 7 pm. A $20 donation is suggested, but all gifts, large and small are welcome. Donations may also be sent to the church at 145 W. Rose Tree Road, www.uucdc.org. The venue is BYOB, LGBTQ Welcoming and family friendly.
