Stafford Band Students Teaming to Fight Hunger
– November 2, 2013 9:33 pm
STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – All five high schools in Stafford County will once again come together to fight hunger Monday, Nov. 11.
More in a press release:
More than 400 students representing all five Stafford County High School marching bands will for the third year perform as one to show what is possible when the greater community works together to provide food assistance to those in need. In recognition of Veterans Day, special honors will be served to our esteemed military veterans. Additionally, “The Commandant’s Own” United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps has accepted our invitation and will be appearing as our special guests for the evening.
Gates will open at 5:30 pm with a wide offering of concessions provided. Nonperishable food donations suggested and monetary donations will be accepted that evening or at fredfood.org This event is not designed simply to showcase musical talent, or highlight individual school band programs, but as a way to bring our Stafford community together in the effort to raise awareness of the challenges in relation to food and hunger that 40 in 100 of citizens in Planning District 16 are facing daily.
Mountain View High School is located at 2135 Mountain View Road in Stafford. All proceeds will go to benefit the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank and provide food back to the hungry of our community.
