Music Festival at Fisher to Benefit Local Homeless Program
St. John Fisher College will host a spring music festival, “Roc for the Homeless” (RFTH), at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 26, outside of Founders Hall. All proceeds from the festival will benefit Rochester Regional Health’s Healthcare for the Homeless Program.
The concert—an outdoor music festival held on the Fisher’s campus—will take place during the College’s year-end celebration, “Fisher Fever,” and will feature student and faculty performers.
RFTH will fundraise for “Healthcare for the Homeless” via merchandise sales, monetary donations, and raffles during the event, which will feature food trucks, a photo booth, a VIP section, giveaways, and more.
A donation drive is also underway on campus to collect winter clothing items including socks, hats, scarves, gloves, shirts, and sweaters to be donated to the “Healthcare for the Homeless” program. A collection box located in the Campus Center will be available throughout April.
Healthcare for the Homeless provides quality comprehensive primary medical care to homeless persons in the Rochester region. The program seeks to improve access to comprehensive medical care for homeless individuals, while simultaneously affording each individual access to services needed to obtain gainful employment, permanent housing, and other resources that may be beneficial to their individual situation, without regard to their ability to pay.
“Roc for the Homeless” is sponsored by the Student Government Association, The PRIMA Group, the Ukulele Club, and the Old Kids Club.
