The Salisbury Symphony gathered over 100 pounds of food as part of the Orchestras Feeding America National Food Drive. That represents enough food to feed nineteen families of four, and over 60 percent stayed in Rowan County.
The Salisbury Symphony collaborated with Second Harvest, based in Charlotte, and all agreed that partnering with Rowan Helping Ministries here in Salisbury was the best use of the collected food items.
Audience members attending the Masterworks concert on March 21, as well as some of the performing musicians, donated food at the concert. This was increased by donations from the members of the Salisbury Youth Orchestra rehearsing the next day.
The parents and friends of the After-School Strings program who attended their Spring Concert on March 24 completed the drive.
