'There is so Much Need out There'

The Doylestown Food Pantry needs help feeding hungry people in Central Bucks. Here's one way you can help.

School of Rock owner Michael Morpurgo wants to teach his students the importance of giving to those in need by partnering with The Doylestown Food Pantry this holiday season.

"In the past we did some food drives. The response was so positive, we decided to top what we did last year by accepting non-perishable food donations at all of my schools," he said in a statement.

During the months of November and December, The Doylestown School of Rock  will once again be accepting non-perishable food donations for The Doylestown Food Pantry.

The school's goal is to raise as much food as possible for those in need during the holiday season. To inspire your charity, Morpurgo has added an enticing twist, "Plus, anyone can come in and redeem their food donation and get a free trial lesson on the instrument of their choice."

"We are so pleased that School of Rock is hosting a food drive for us again this year. Now that is great tradition!" said Kate Bianchini, Volunteer Coordinator, at The Doylestown Pantry.

"The food donated through this drive will help families living right in our neighborhood. There is so much need out there and we are committed to making sure that we are doing all we can do to make sure folks do not go hungry. It is great to see that the community shares this commitment to help our neighbors in need," Ms. Bianchini added.

The Doylestown School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.  For more information about the School of Rock, call Beca Dunst at (215) 230-3406 or e-mail her at rdunst@schoolofrock.com.
