Student based organizations, The Love Renaissance Project and the Conscious of Self, are joining together to help the community this holiday season. They will be holding a canned food concert on Friday, November 16th at 6:00pm in the Rosewood Room of Sacramento State University’s Student Union.
The concert will consist of a wide variety of locally based artists including Century Got Bars, Young Natho, Jasmine Nichol, Edi Futur,Reela, Vence Lewis and many others.
Admission is just one can but five cans will allow you to be placed into the raffle for a Conscious of Self shirt or a bracelet from Beads Over Cuffs. All canned food items will be directly donated to Loaves and Fishes the next day.
“There’s no background agenda, there’s no sob story. People are hungry. We know that feeling and since we’re in a position to at least try to help, then we ought to give our best try.” says Nate Tate, a member of both organizations and a performer in the show.
Donations of canned food, daily household items such as soap, feminine products, toothpaste, etc, and money can also be donated. All donations will be taken to Loaves and Fishes as well. Volunteers are needed for the event and to help package and take all donations to Loaves and Fishes on Saturday November 17th.
