Denise Reed and Marlin Martin thank you letter

The North Coast Chorale and the Clatsop Community Action Regional Food Bank extend their thanks for the generous support for the Messiah Sing and Play-Along held on Nov. 26 at the Performing Arts Center in Astoria. The gifts to the CCA Regional Food Bank topped $2,000 plus over 150 pounds of food.

The chorale singers are so grateful to have a music-loving audience like our friends in Clatsop County. We all experienced the joy of giving, to the CCA Regional Food Bank. Through efforts like this we know that we are part of a community that helps those in need.

Being part of this longstanding tradition is an honor for us at CCA Regional Food Bank. As we do our work, we are reminded of another longstanding tradition — the commitment to always remember the poor. The gifts received the evening of the North Coast Chorale’s Sing and Play-Along will allow us to acquire over 10,000 pounds of food. And during this holiday season it will be especially helpful to many people across our county. Our sincere thanks go out to all who assisted and participated in this wonderful evening. Listening to the music and joyful voices that evening reinforced the purpose of my work during this very busy time.
