November 9, 2011 • Washington
Singers and others willing to share their musical talents – including individuals, friends and organized groups – can help local food banks while bringing smiles to shoppers this holiday season.
The annual Sing from the Heart event will be conducted Dec. 9-11 at all Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores. Haggen will donate a $50 gift card to a local food bank for each hour an individual or group presents holiday music. Participants may include organizations, quartets, choirs, families or friends.
“These local singers and musicians make the holidays more pleasant while also helping many families,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores.
Sing from the Heart will be presented at each Haggen store from 2-7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, noon-6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10 and noon-5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11. Groups must register in advance for a time at the guest services counter of a Haggen store or by calling their local store.
