End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive on Friday and the free breakfast they receive on Monday morning. End 68 provides these children with a backpack full of food every weekend to help meet their nutritional needs. There will be a container at each concert for food donations. Suggested food donations are: tuna, granola bars, peanut butter and jelly (no glass please). Rockingham Choral Society is excited to partner with this wonderful group and to “Singing for their supper.” Take advantage of one of these opportunities to hear a great program of Broadway music while helping our local youth by reserving your tickets online at www.rockinghamchoralsociety.org.
