Day of Service Concert and Food Drive
By Johnell DeWitt
Fairfax, VA Roughly 900,000 people in Virginia don’t know where their next meal will come from. A group of musicians would like to change that.
On Sunday, September 29 at Fairfax High School, Grammy nominated violinist, Jenny Oaks Baker, and the Mormon Choir of Washington D.C. will hold a concert as part of the annual Day of Service initiative.
“The theme for this concert is, ‘With Gratitude we Share,’” said Greg Goehring, the program director. “We hope this will be an evening of music, fellowship and a re-commitment to lift one another through our words and deeds so that those in need may have hope for tomorrow.”
The concert begins at 7 p.m. and the cost of admission is a donation of non-perishable food, which will be donated to the food banks in the Fairfax area.
The music selections will vary from religious to contemporary and the concert is expected to last about one hour. More information about the performers can be found at http://www.jennyoaksbaker.com and http://www.mormonchoir.org.
The Day of Service Day began in 2012 as a collaboration between the governors of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington D.C. It is a unique event that unites people of all faiths, races, cultures, and backgrounds with the shared goal of helping those in need and improving the local community.
