“I was looking up to see what music-related Eagle Scout projects were available when I got the idea to put on a charity concert to bring the community together, “organizer and Eagle Scout Ethan Erb said. “I’ve done a lot of work with the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank so I decided I wanted this to help them as well in their mission to alleviate food insecurity.”
Admission to the event can be in the form of canned goods and monetary donations. Donations will be going to the Central Pennsylvania Area Food Bank. Organizers hope that this concert will bring awareness to how many people in the Midstate suffer from food insecurity.
