With food bank use on the rise, Tom Jackson’s nationwide call to end hunger needs to be heard again. The Huron Carole returns this year with Tom on a national tour beginning in November to raise funds and awareness for Canada’s hungry.
The concert is filled with Christmas music and stories that embrace messages of peace, harmony and optimism.
Over 20 years ago, Tom began cultivating a network of Canadian artists who shared a common interest in helping our country’s needy. After many successful years of raising funds through The Huron Carole, Tom put the project to rest in 2004. He spent the next seven years bringing Singing for Supper to smaller communities in more intimate settings. As a result of the increasing need for food banks across the country, Tom is breathing life back into The Huron Carole.
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.
Artists will vary from show to show.
