We can provide collection canisters and We
can also provide
songsheets to try
this variation on collecting at a program,
shared by Rhonda Saltzman,
former music specialist at
Iveland Elementary School
in the Ritenour School District:
"After my holiday show,
we would have a
Sing Along with the
audience and pass the
red StLCCA cans
down each row while we sang.
Iveland Student Council also
holds a Candy Cane sale
for two days at lunchtime,
with proceeds to the StLCCA.
Introduce your kids/students to the joy and satisfaction of
"
Caroling for a Cause"!
. . . for Families, Music Teachers, Choir Directors, Counselors, Club
Sponsors, Scout Leaders - anyone who has/works with children...

We can place carolers at Lambert Airport, at area shopping centers & stores, and get requests
for special holiday events, too.  Some spots are great for large groups, while small groups,
such as
Scout troops,show/jazz choirs and church choirs are perfect for others.

It's a wonderful way to gain recognition for your group while giving members a terrific
(and fun)
Community Service opportunity. Some venues make a direct donation to the StLCCA
for the performance;others allow groups to collect donations using our cans.  
If you are interested, check the current list of
Special Sing locations found on
our
"Join us!" page,then call or email our office or use the form on that page to contact us.
We will do our best to find a venue that matches your needs.
Neighborhood caroling doesn't work?  Do a "Special Sing"!
"In-School Caroling"
from Rose Nester, former music
specialist  in the St. Louis Public Schools:
"send home a note a week or so ahead,
asking that all students bring
'pennies for the carolers'.
Then, with a small group of singers,
move through the school,singing in
several locations, as students drop their
coins in the collection cans.
What a wonderful way to model caroling
itself and also demonstrate giving to your
community!  
Music Teachers
aren't the only ones
who could be
caroling leaders a in  
school!  Counselors,
NHS, Student Council
and other service
club sponsors make
club sponsors make
great caroling
leaders!
Can't carol outside of school?
Try one of these ideas:
What a FUN way for high school students or confirmation candidates to
satisfy
community service requirements!
Create a "Caroling Club"!
Here's another wonderful school idea,
submitted by
Dr. Betty Scheller, former
principal at Lawson Elementary School,
Hazelwood School District.  She created  
a
"Caroling Club" within the after school
club structure in her district.
Students meet several times after
school to practice, then meet one
evening at school with their families -
they divide into groups and carol through
the neighborhood, then return to the
school for hot chocolate and cookies.
What a great way to reach out to your
community!
