Ten Strings and a Goat Skin help Santa’s Angels provide happy Christmas mornings
HUNTER RIVER – For the second year, the Island’s traditional trio, Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, will be providing proceeds from their Dec. 21 Harmony House Christmas concert to the Charlottetown Santa’s Angels organization.
Ten Strings and a Goat Skin band members, Jesse Périard, and brothers Rowen and Caleb Gallant, will get into the festive spirit with a fundraising concert for Santa’s Angels at Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River on Dec. 21.
Santa’s Angels, a local grassroots team, organize and fundraise to carry out surprise Christmas morning visits by Santa and his elves, to many seniors, Island children and their families each year. A 100 per cent volunteer-based group, the group services those whose current situation finds them unable to provide Christmas gifts or food for their families. Each visit is customized and personalized based upon the needs of the individual or family.
“Making a nice home Christmas celebration can be tough for some parents who, at times, might have difficulty even putting food on the table,” says Ten Strings group member, Caleb Gallant. “At this time of year, the great work of Santa’s Angels and the other community organizations presents the true spirit of Christmas. We want to participate and help them out a bit.”
