AMAZING!!!

The Messiah was an outstanding event, filled with joy, wonder, and generosity!!! You the community came together to give nearly $9,000 to the Geauga Hunger Task Force!

What a gift!!! 

We are so grateful to the community and to all of the fantastic and talented musicians who provided such a beautiful concert. 

If you are eager to share in the gift of music once more, Pilgrim Christian Church is hosting a concert this Friday (December 16) at 7:30pm. The Olympic Brass will perform their "Silver Bells" repertoire that is perfect for the whole family. Pilgrim Christian Church is located at 202 South Hambden Street in Chardon.

Grow Something Good for Geauga County!

If you are considering a way to get involved with the Geauga Hunger Task Force and support the food pantries that operate in Geauga County. There is a beautiful opportunity this summer to be a volunteer that grows something good for our neighbors.

Churches and community organizations around the county have raised beds on their property (like this one at Pilgrim Christian Church) that may welcome volunteers to grow vegetables or flowers for such a purpose. Some apartment complexes have raised beds too. Other apartment complexes may have the space that could be set aside for such a purpose if someone or some group were prepared to build and support a garden. And, of course, if you have a garden in your own backyard and would like to offer contributions to the food pantry closest to you, please contact the local pantry and ask how you can help.  

Let's see how much good we can grow for everyone in Geauga County. 

Wow! Thank You!!!

The Good Tidings Benefit Choir performed beautifully this past weekend! The concert raised over $3,700 to help fill our food pantries! This is the second highest total for the Spring Concerts! 

A special thanks to Kaitlin Emmert for coming from Cleveland with her violin. And to Joy M. Leirer for accompaniment and Bob Boles for his direction. And certainly the Sisters of Notre Dame for their generosity with their home Chapel.

What a compassionate and gifted community!

 

What a Gift!!!

With the gracious hospitality from the Sisters of Notre Dame, the gifts of music from the community choirs, and the generosity of all who came to hear such joyous music for this season, over $9,000 was raised to support the mission of the Geauga Hunger Task Force!!!

That is a tremendous gift for any season and at any time! 

Our incredible gratitude for the generosity that stirs your hearts to care for our neighbors.
