Embarking on a new way to involve South Florida’s youth in philanthropy, Atlantic Community High School junior Samantha Kerker a has collaborated with students from six Palm Beach high schools to present a concert to build a Food For The Poor school in Chinandega, Nicaragua. You are invited to participate in this evening of music and dance with friends and family. Samantha’s idea to start “Students For The Poor” clubs in Palm Beach County was inspired by the questions her peers asked about her Food For The Poor mission trip to Nicaragua.
Event chairs : The benefit concert is the collaboration of six Palm Beach high schools. Participating Food For The Poor Students For The Poor clubs include Atlantic Community High School, Suncoast Community High School, A.W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, Palm Beach Central High School, Boca Raton Community High School, and West Boca Raton Community High School. Students For The Poor (SFP) is a unique student outreach effort initiated by students and developed by Food For The Poor, Inc. (FFP). SFP is an organized outreach group on high school and college campuses throughout the United States.
Sponsors : Performers to include The Kinected (Pop Music), Kasper featuring Syxx Ent (Hip Hop/Rap), Amanda (Pianist, singing Adele songs), and Siren (Rock Band).
Use of proceeds : Proceeds from the benefit concert will be used to build a critically needed Food For The Poor school in Chinandega, Nicaragua to benefit disadvantaged children in the area. In developing countries, school classes are sometimes held under a tree or in a dilapidated building. Both of these scenarios make it difficult for the students to concentrate on their studies. Donations can also be mailed to: Food For The Poor, 6401 Lyons Road, Coconut Creek, FL 33073.
Please make checks payable to Food For The Poor and include the special source code “SC# 77575” to accurately route your donation.
