Building Sacred Bridges
Calgary’s faith communities are coming together to organize two significant concerts in the New Year to support Habitat families. The concerts will take place on February 11 and 12 2017 at Knox United Church and Beth Tzedec Synague and will feature the talents of singers and musicians of different faiths from across Calgary.
Each concert is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta with a suggested minimum donation of $20 per seat.
These two unforgettable musical experiences will include inspiring works performed by eight groups:
- Corpus Christi Male Chorale
- YYC Campus Ministry Drum Troupe
- United In Song
- Kol Sasson (Joyful Sound)
- Zimran (My Song)
- Inter-Faith String Ensemble
- LDS Institute Choir
- Lutheran Church of Our Saviour Praise Singers
100% of donations received from this event will go to help local Habitat for Humanity families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership. Many families in Calgary are working hard to provide for their children, but are facing struggles from high rents and poor living conditions. The consequences of housing instability and paying too high a proportion of family income on rent are significant, particularly for developing children. These working families often feel powerless to change their situation.
Your donation will help working families by assisting with the costs of construction of a Habitat home. Habitat homes are then purchased by families through an affordable, no-down-payment, no-interest mortgage, with monthly payments that are adjusted to their income level. Families then have the flexibility and stability to make positive, forward-looking choices for their own lives and their children’s future.
Make a real difference in a local family’s life today!
