The Fall Music Festival is bringing some of your favorite local musicians right into your own home this month to raise money to support a growing need in the community. The organizers of the festival are taking the show online to help raise money for the Wayne County Emergency Food Relief Fund.

The Wayne County Emergency Food Relief Fund has been established at the Wayne County Community Foundation to help raise funds and support emergency food efforts across Wayne County now and during the COVID-19 recovery period as well. The funds will support purchasing food and supplies to distribute food in Wayne County through the Wayne County Pantry Program, The Cooperage Project and the various churches and community groups that are helping to feed our community members during this difficult time. 

"These are unprecedented times in every sense of the phrase. The Wayne County Community Foundation is just trying to do our part by being the "one-stop-shop" for philanthropic giving to efficiently support the nonprofits in our County that are serving our community members,” said the foundation’s Executive Director Ryanne Jennings. “People are in need of food for themselves and their families today. Our community is working together, across sectors, to help meet those needs as quickly as possible." 

The Wayne County Cares Concert Series is scheduled to stream live on Facebook the following dates and times:

April 11 @ 7 p.m. - Featuring Owen Walsh & Special Guests
April 18 @ 7 p.m. - TBA
April 25 @ 7 p.m. - TBA

Organizers ask the public to join virtually from their homes for the concert series as well as support local restaurants by ordering take-out

All donations are tax-deductible and will be used to purchase food to be given to those in need. Donations can be made online or by sending a check with “Emergency Food “ in the memo to:
