After missing its fundraising goal last year, Operation REACH is starting early in 2013.
“That’s what it’s going to take,” President Jane Ollis said.
A benefit concert featuring Ten Foot Grave and Site 109 is scheduled at Midway High School on Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Roane County Sheriff’s Deputy Rick Butler, the school resource officer for Midway, said the concert is free, but donations for REACH are appreciated.
“Everyone is welcome,” he said.
REACH is an acronym for Roane Enriches Another Child’s Holiday.
The nonprofit program raises money to give less-fortunate children the opportunity to go Christmas shopping.
“We’re going to have several fundraisers throughout the year to try and reach our goal,” Ollis said. Midway High School is at 530 Loudon Hwy., Kingston.
