Carols by Candlelight is a concert event for all ages. Children in attendance will be invited to participate in a meaningful moment that benefits the food pantry for families at Interfaith Housing Coalition. They are invited to bring a single “gift” from this list: a box of macaroni and cheese, a can of soup or vegetables, a plastic jar of Peanut Butter, a package of 100 percent fruit rolls or a plastic jar of trail mix.
We are thrilled to partner once again with DFW Brass, and we invite you to find out more about them by visiting their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/DFWBrass/.
