Christmas is a wonderful time of peace, harmony, optimism, and good will towards others. So it is in that spirit that the annual Huron Carole concert series returns this year with its national tour to help raise funds and awareness for Canada’s hungry. With 18 stops throughout the country and an assortment of high quality musical talent including George Canyon, One More Girl, Beverley Mahood and Shannon Gaye, founder Tom Jackson’s call to end hunger is ready to be heard once again in communities large and small, near and far.
Since 1987, Canadian actor and musician Tom Jackson has been working hard to bring the message to end hunger by cultivating a network of like-minded artists from around the country brought together with the common interest of helping Canada’s needy. While under the name of The Huron Carole and Singing for Supper, the concert series has helped spread awareness of the nation’s hunger problems and raise funds to help food bank workers and volunteers accomplish their mission of ending hunger.
The Huron Carole is a project of the Christmas & Winter Relief Association whose mandate is to support organizations doing hands-on work with the homeless and hungry in Canada.
