For a number of years the entire proceeds from the Christmas program presented by the Rimbey Community Chorus have been given to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. This is a partnership of 15 church and church-based agencies that have been working together since 1983 to end global hunger. Free-will donations given at this year’s presentation, “Christmas Alleluia” totaled $3349.
Thanks to the Canadian Government’s support in the effort to end hunger around the world, this amount will be matched on a 4 to 1 basis; which means that as a result of our community’s giving, more than $13,000 will go to the Foodgrains Bank.
Thank you, Rimbey Community Chorus, and your dedicated director, Annette Boorman; and thank you everyone who attended the Christmas program and gave so generously. Your gifts are truly appreciated.
