Ringing the Bells with Joy at Muskegon Rescue Mission!

The Gift of Music visited the Muskegon Rescue Mission on December 21st for a fun hour of bell ringing, carol singing, and Christmas story reading!

The group that participated were children of residents at Muskegon Rescue Mission, which has served individuals and families in need in the Muskegon Area with clothes, food, shelter and other services since 1907.

Early on Monday morning, Miss Chantal arrived with a bag full of jingle bells, stringed instruments and other fun musical goodies. The children enjoyed dancing with scarves, learning about different types of bells, and singing along to popular Christmas carols.  

At the end of class, each child received a Velcro jingle bell bracelet to keep! Program planning, travel, staff expenses and the cost of instruments are all a part of the C-Fund's Gift of Music Program. Any gift--whether big or small--makes a huge difference to our funding and directly impacts the lives of children in our area who are in need.
