It’s billed as the “Fill the Need” benefit concert Saturday evening at the Manteca Senior Center hosted by Doctors Hospital and the “Reunion Band” asking for audience support for those in need during the holidays.

The concert doors are set to open at 4 p.m. with the teen band “Paragon” first entertaining their crowd followed by the “Reunion Band” that will thrill their audience until 7 p.m.

Bringing household items to the concert will be the only admission.  Blankets, sheets, towels or canned food, and nonperishable groceries are to be turned over to the HOPE Family Shelter in Manteca.

The hospital staff and band members agree on the point that hunger is a year-round issue facing the community.  They ask that this Thanksgiving season Manteca residents join them in their quest to help alleviate the impact of hunger on local individuals as well as on families.
