They will also be conducting a food drive at this concert to benefit the House of Neighborly Service in order to help feed families in need in our community.
The concert is free to the public, but those attending are asked to bring a bag of non-perishable food items to benefit the House of Neighborly Service. The Loveland Concert Band is very pleased to partner with the House of Neighborly Service to celebrate this time of year through wonderful music and generous donations of much needed food.
The Loveland Concert Band is a nonprofit group of adult musicians from throughout northern Colorado.
The Loveland Concert Band’s mission is to increase music awareness in the community. It does so through its musical presentations and its annual scholarship raffle and scholarship awards.
The House Of Neighborly Service (HNS) assists and advocates for people challenged by the effects of poverty or situational crisis. Many of their clients are young families who are working but not making ends meet, single mothers and fathers who are doing everything they can to keep their families safe and provide for basic needs. Other clients are seniors, veterans, and disabled who live on fixed incomes, and individuals who experience job loss due to illness or layoff. Approximately half of their clients are school-aged children in the families.
The HNS battle cry is “Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow”.
HELP FOR TODAY: They help people who have found themselves in economic crisis by providing them with life-sustaining needs: food, clothing, transportation, prescription and utility assistance, plus many more valuable services.
HOPE FOR TOMORROW: They help people plan for the future by providing individualized support to all of their families through case management, financial education, and helping them find the resources they need to thrive. Each head of household is required to complete a Financial Literacy course for ongoing services. More info: http://www.honservice.org/
