December 5th Concert
This Holiday Concert, the BMS Bands again will be partnering with the BMS Student Council and (new this year) the BMS Visual Arts Program to help curb the pains of childhood hunger in West Michigan by partaking in the BMS Kids Food Basket December Outreach.
Currently, Kids Food Basket supplies food DAILY to over 8,000 West Michigan children, serving 47 schools with an additional 30 schools on a wait-list. The impact of this local, grassroots organization is felt and needed weekly.
It is asked that each family, as your optional “admission” to the BMS Winter Concerts, donate at least one item off of the Wish List below. We will have two collection stations at HFC outside of our auditorium. While it will not be tracked for the homeroom competition to be announced this month, it will go towards our total impact against local childhood hunger. Your donation will have an IMMEDIATE impact on a child in West Michigan as most items once donated are bagged and sent out within 36 hours.
Food items to be donated can
consist of the following
Dried Fruit or Raisins
Cheese Crackers (Goldfish/Cheeze-its)
Toasted Oat Cereal (Cheerios)
(Off-Brands for all choices are acceptable!)
With an estimated 240 families and approximately 1,200 audience members to attend this concert, we have the ability to change lives in our community! We encourage you to consider giving to this cause!
