The Holiday Concerts sponsored by FOX8 and Old Dominion Freight Line have provided The Salvation Army with food to help feed those in need. Millions of cans of food have been collected since 1987. This is the 27th year for the Greensboro concert, the 25th year for the Winston-Salem concert and the 8th year for the Burlington concert. In total, we have collected 6.7 million cans for families across the Piedmont.
This is the largest and most important food raising event of the year for The Salvation Army. Last year, over 20,000 people where served.
Annually, over 17,000 people attend the concerts. In 2013, we collected over 468,000 cans of food with 30 companies participating in the Holiday Food Drive.
For years, the Holiday Concerts have been held at the Greensboro Coliseum, Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial and in Burlington and are a proven tradition offering quality holiday entertainment. The Concerts invite families to attend an evening of music provided by the Greensboro and Winston Salem Symphony’s. The “cost” to attend is a can of food.
In recent years, the need in the TRIAD has exceeded the cans collections at the concerts. That is why FOX8, Old Dominion Freight Line and The Salvation Army are reaching out to local businesses to participate in an eight week campaign culminating with the Concerts (Winston-Salem: December 13, Greensboro: December 14, Burlington: December 19).
