A Light in the Dark.
The Couv’ Groove benefit concert with Alisa Williams & Friends will take place Friday, December 16, 2011, 7 pm at Mill Plain United Methodist Church (15804 SE Mill Plain, Vancouver) . This concert is FREE and open to the public.
People are encouraged to bring hard goods like canned foods to support the local food bank and HUGS which stands for new hats, undies, gloves and socks to support local homeless shelters. There will be a Love Offering where money gifts will support the Winter Hospitality Overflow (WHO) Shelter and the Friends of the Carpenter (FOC).
The WHO Shelter is a homeless shelter that provides a safe place for the homeless during winter’s coldest months. Not only are guests offered a warm place to sleep, but also food, a hot shower and the warmth of volunteers caring to provide the most basic of human needs. The Friends of the Carpenter is another local organization that supports the homeless population by providing a welcoming community in their 20,000 sq. ft. workplace. The FOC have numerous activities available some of which teach people wood working techniques and make beautiful wood pieces which are available for purchase through their workshop.
The Couv’ Groove benefit concert with Alisa Williams & Friends is one local community supporters’ offering to help our local homeless population during this time of year. Alisa says, “I have always been very grateful for everything I have and I know it does not take much to find another in a worse situation. I hope that this benefit concert will become a regular annual community event and that people will make it a part of their many holiday traditions.”
