Christmas includes carolling, community at CCPA

Canadian College of the Performing Arts students create Christmas hampers for those in need

Canadian College of the Performing Arts students will build community connections and Christmas hampers for those in need Dec. 6.

“It’s grown every year,” said Steven Seltzer, public relations at CCPA, adding that students will be out in the community carolling and sharing their talents as well.

The 15th annual event, founded by Joyce Kline, included 125 hampers put together last year. They’re then donated to the Salvation Army drive.

“It’s students working with the community and volunteers,” said Darold Roles, artistic and education director at CCPA. “It makes everyone feel great Christmas morning when they wake up and think, ‘Hey I helped 125 people have a great Christmas.’”

Drop off donations during office hours at the school, 1701 Elgin Rd. or the day they assemble hampers, Dec. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. in Henderson hall adjacent to the school.

As a registered non-profit, tax receipts are available for cash donations.
