Greensboro College Will Host "Healing Blues" Communion Service Thursday, Oct. 2

"Greensboro College will host a Communion service at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, as part of The Healing Blues Project. It is free and open to the public.

The service will be held in the Hannah Brown Finch Memorial Chapel on campus. Music will be provided by Healing Blues songwriters and musicians, as well as GC faculty members Dave Fox and Neill Clegg.

The Healing Blues Project is a fundraiser to benefit downtown Greensboro's Interactive Resource Center, a nonprofit day center for people experiencing homelessness. People who have experienced homelessness or other trauma have worked with local musicians to turn their life stories into blues songs.

The songs have been recorded on a CD, sales of which benefit the IRC. Proceeds from multiple live performances, including a concert Oct. 5 at Greensboro College, also will benefit the center. The project's fundraising goal is $30,000.
