Tis’ the Season for Giving…And Broadway

Updated 6 years ago by Angela Jones, Marshall Artists Series

HUNTINGTON, WV- Just in time for the holiday season, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer The Musical will make its way to the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center this Thursday, December 4 @ 7:30 p.m. And coinciding with this Broadway Musical is the annual Cridlin Food Pantry Canned Food Drive. Help feed hungry Tri-State families this holiday by bringing any non-perishable food items to the donation bin inside the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center. Items needed include: Beef Stew, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Chili, Mac & Cheese, Tuna, Ravioli, Chicken Noodle, Tomato & Vegetable Soups, Cereal, and spaghetti and sauce.


Every month the Cridlin Food Pantry collects a certain canned food item throughout the week given by its members. Members also volunteer at the pantry on the fourth Monday of every month. Coordination for the ministry is headed by Jack Spurlock. And the Cridlin Food Pantry doesn’t only help the homeless, but also helps neighbors, coworkers, children, and the elderly. Almost 49 million individuals suffer from food insecurity, and learning about these issues is the first step in joining the cause.

Patrons interested in donating food items for this cause may bring them to the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center on the day of the show beginning at 6:30 p.m.
