Show organizer, noted musician Scott Petito, explains, “at a time of need for so many, vocalist Leslie Ritter and I are bringing back our traditional holiday benefit show after an absence of several years. Because basic needs like food, clothing, housing, and other services to the community are in great demand. People’s Place is a valuable hub to help with these issues and we could not be happier to support them.”

Joining the stellar line-up are vocalist/guitarist Rebecca Martin and bassist Larry Grenadier, pianist Rachel Z Hakim, drummer Jeff Lipstein, and Lost Leaders with Byron Isaacs, Peter Cole, Lee Falco, and Will Bryant. The event promises an afternoon of outstanding live music in support of Kingston’s People’s Place Thrift Store & Food Pantry.

About People’s Place

People’s Place is the largest food pantry in Ulster County and the only food pantry open 5 days a week. All food is provided free of charge. The Personal Care Closet, located inside the food pantry area, offers families and individuals free items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and deodorant. Our Thrift Store provides free and affordable clothing, footwear, and household items. Funding for People’s Place comes from individual donors, sponsors, grants, fundraisers, special events and our Thrift Store. The number of people we have helped to feed in our community has continued to grow by about 25% each year and has jumped exponentially during the Covid-19 pandemic, so People’s Place can benefit from your financial support throughout the year, as well as your donations of food and goods.
