The Coral Springs Charter student government and faculty members invite the community to a school fundraiser event supporting the less fortunate this holiday season.
The Not So Silent Night concert takes place on Friday, December 16, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Coral Springs Charter school parking lot at 3205 North University Drive.
Student Government Advisor Kelly O’Neill told Coral Springs Talk the event was put together to raise funds that will help bring joy to community members without a home this holiday season.
She added that Not So Silent Night was created to support the homeless community.
“We’ll hopefully be able to collect enough donations from attendees to make care packages to drop off at the local shelters.”
The school’s care packages donated to shelters will include perishable goods, toiletries, and donated clothes, along with a handmade holiday letter created by event attendees.
To enter, guests are asked to donate three items – canned goods or clothes– or pay an entrance fee of $7.00 at the door. All funds received will go towards purchasing items included in care packages Coral Springs Charter delivers to the homeless.
Entertainment includes various performances, a tree lighting ceremony, face painting, a holiday card arts and crafts center, and pictures with the panther mascot.
