HUDSON COUNTY -- The weather outside may be frightful, and for the homeless, there’s little that’s delightful during this time of year.

There’s a way for you to help: Attend a choir concert Wednesday, Dec. 18; at Saint Aedan’s: The Saint Peter’s University Church in Jersey City starting at 7 p.m. Donations of a new blanket or $20 are requested as admission price.

The United Way of Hudson County (UWHC), Garden State Episcopal Community Development Corporation (GSECDC), and Saint Peter’s University have organized this inaugural concert, which benefits the Longest Night Campaign. Several choirs will participate.

“December 21 is the longest night of the year and the beginning of the coldest season,” Dan Altilio, president of UWHC, said. “This concert will bring the community together to do something to help people on the street and focus attention on the serious issue of homelessness.”

The concert will take place at Saint Aedan’s, 800 Bergen Ave., Jersey City, NJ 07306. The Newark Boys Choir, Henry Rawls, and other local choirs will sing.

This event is sponsored by the Longest Night Campaign Committee, CarePoint Health Foundation, Rotary Club of Jersey City, Saint Peter’s University, GSECDC, and UWHC.
