The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and Arkansas Foodbank are working together to fight hunger in Arkansas this holiday season.
The ASO is asking attendees of the “Beethoven & Blue Jeans” concerts Saturday and Sunday to bring a frozen turkey with them. The turkeys will be donated to the Arkansas Foodbank to help provide a healthy meal to the one in four Arkansans struggling with hunger.
Foodbank Spokesman Tyler Lindsey said the ASO first approached them with the idea last year and it was a huge success.
