On a hot day in August, seven participants and friends of the Co-op Cred Program hit the pavement and raised nearly $3000 at a show at the Molson Amplitheatre.
This was all thanks to the American charity, WhyHunger, and the rap metal music group Prophets of Rage. The charity connects touring musicians with local initiatives in the cities they are performing. The band chose to support PARC and the Co-op Cred Program, and called the audience to donate to the cause throughout the evening.
The participants did an amazing job engaging with the crowd of 14,000 people and collected $2848.20 that will be turned into cred earned through meaningful community work.
