In December, the University of Toronto Gospel Choir will host its annual Christmas Concert series at various churches across the Greater Toronto Area (including one in Grimsby, ON). Admission to each concert is FREE of charge, though we will be collecting a freewill love offering for a local charity, as well as non-perishable food items for donation to a local food bank. We're looking forward to some great nights of singing and celebration, as we rejoice at the birth of Jesus Christ. We hope to see you there!
IN SUPPORT OF
This year, proceeds from the Christmas Concert series will go to local charity FEAT. FEAT for Children of Incarcerated Parents was founded in 2011 to support the needs of the over 50,000 children in Ontario that have a parent in the criminal justice system.
FEAT is dedicated to providing supportive programming that fosters self-esteem and security for children affected by parental incarceration. By supporting our children and teaching healthy coping strategies, FEAT hopes to empower these innocent victims to overcome adversity and embrace a brighter future. Furthermore, FEAT is committed to advocating for these children and their rights. Together with the family and our community partners, FEAT offers these at-risk children the support they need during parental incarceration and reintegration. Our goal is to optimize their psychological, emotional, social, and physical well being and reduce the cycle of intergenerational crime.
The University of Toronto Gospel Choir is proud to support FEAT in serving young students in the local community.
