St. Alban’s Episcopal Church is hosting a Celtic Christmas concert on Monday, Dec. 5 benefiting Chase Lake Community School’s Safety Net Program for students in need.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. Monday at St. Alban’s, 21405 82nd Pl. W., Edmonds. Donations of cash or non-perishable food will be collected at the door.
Chase Lake Safety Net works to reduce hurdles to success caused by poverty, homelessness, and family disruption. They provide immediate emergency help with basic needs (food, clothing, transportation) as well as family advocacy and help connecting with community providers. The goal is to ensure a safe and stable environment to students so they can focus on their education.
During the last school year, the program:
- sent home 679 wheeled backpacks full of groceries for students and their families.
- provided food baskets, gift cards, and winter coats to 62 of the school’s families during the winter holidays.
- gave out 3,414 after-school snacks to homeless students before their long rides home.
- distributed 27 emergency gift cards to families for food, household items or fuel.
The evening concert will feature contemporary Celtic music with Windham Hill/ArkMusic recording artists Jeff Johnson on keys and vocals; Brian Dunning, flutes and whistles; Wendy Goodwin, violin and special guest Eric Miller on guitar.
