Bluhouse & JML are excited about hosting a concert in Deep Cove, and thrilled to be supporting the North Shore Harvest Project!

Come out for some heartfelt acoustic music from Vancouver touring musician John Michael Lind, with a repertoire ranging from his own superbly crafted original songs to gems from the likes of John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Hank Williams, Van Morrison, and Steve Earle.

Admission is by donation to The Harvest Project.

Here's what Joe McGuinness from the HP suggests for useful donations this season:

"A great idea would be to collect pull ups or diapers size 5,6. Toiletries are also in high demand– shampoo, conditioner, tooth brush and paste, toilet paper, soap, disposable razors, feminine products, etc.…. 70 % of our clients are women, with 50% being single moms. These are essential items that are desperately needed and come right out of their limited grocery budget.

"Here is a short list of most needed items food items … canned chicken, salmon or tuna, canned veggies, canned fruit, small cans of soup, rice, coffee, granola bars….

"The families that we engage with are struggling for all sorts of reasons – illness, disability, and job loss to name but a few. Hundreds of parents with their children, newer residents, along with people experiencing chronic health challenges, all benefit from our services. We provide coaching and counsel, emotional, physical and psychological support, as well as supplementary groceries, and clothing.

"Your support and generosity has a major impact in bringing dignity back to these families. It is our privilege to be a part of this caring community. Thanks in advance for playing your part in offering “A Hand Up, not a hand out” to our neighbours in need."

Come for the great food and music, and please give generously at the door!
