Concert at Christ Church to Raise Funds for Alexandria Hunger Programs

Posted by Meredith, November 2, 2015

Local artists with the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra will use the power of music to fight hunger in the City of Alexandria by hosting a benefit concert at Christ Church.  Thousands of Alexandrians, perhaps as many as one in five, live in households struggling to make ends meet. Unfortunately, when it comes to deciding what bills to pay, some of these families are forced to reduce what they spend on food. For our homeless neighbors, emergency feeding programs are designed to offer meals throughout the week.  Emergency Food providers in Alexandria work together through food pantries and feeding programs aimed at supporting these individuals and families.
