COMFORT YE... 2012

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: November 22, 2012, 8:44 PM

Description

For the eighteenth consecutive year soprano Lauren Flanigan and conductor Kamal Khan will present Comfort Ye... a Holiday Concert to benefit New York's homeless on Tuesday evening, December 18th, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in the Peter J. Sharp Theater at Symphony Space. The first Comfort Ye... concert began in 1995 in an effort to provide immediate resources to vital Upper West Side charities.

Admission to the concert is a warm winter coat or blanket, or a shopping bag of non-perishable food items or baby diapers. Audience members may also pay a suggested cash donation of $40.00 in lieu of food and clothing. Please note that clothing cannot be accepted.

The audience is encouraged to place their donated items on stage as part of the giving process. After the concert we move all the donated goods from the stage to a truck, then unload the food from the truck to a food bank and the coats to a local police precinct.

We need more smart, STRONG volunteers who are not afraid of working hard on a cold day, getting their hands dirty and lifting some heavy boxes. We now have hand-carts but we also need good old-fashioned elbow grease.

Plus all volunteers gte to join us for an evening of spectacular music in support of those less fortunate than ourselves.

To volunteer, please write comfortyevolunteer --at -- gmail.com!
