Mark your calendar and join TASK
for the 20th Annual Ernie White Band & Friends Christmas Benefit – a free concert on Sunday, December 20 at 7 p.m. virtually on Facebook at: https://fb.me/e/1SnbXxX7W
Enjoy a night of fun and holiday rock and roll, served up Trenton style while lending a helping hand to TASK. For nearly 40 years TASK has never turned away anyone who has come to us for a meal – no questions asked. This year we’ve fed more people than ever in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout this trying time TASK has continued to serve meals to thousands, including those who find themselves in need of our services for the first time because of economic hardships brought on by the health crisis. As a result, TASK has seen a 90-percent increase in meal service over last year.
“We are incredibly thankful that Ernie White and his legendary band have once again decided to designate the funds raised at their annual event to the soup kitchen,” said TASK Executive Director Joyce E. Campbell. “Our patrons, including the new hungry in our community, are very appreciative this extraordinary act of kindness.”
For two decades, Trenton’s legendary guitar rocker, Ernie White and his band have led this rockin’ Christmas concert with the help of local and internationally famous musicians, raising over $200,000 for local charities including the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund, Trenton Head Start, Mercer Street Friends, New York Times 9/11 Fund, Hamilton Elks Handicapped Children’s Fund, CASA, Contact (Suicide Prevention Hot Line), ARC Mercer, Boys and Girls Club of Trenton, YWCA of Trenton, and Musicians of New Orleans Fund.
