(Charleston, SC) Charleston Stage and Crisis Ministries will be partnering this holiday season to raise donations and awareness for homeless individuals in Charleston.  Charleston Stage will be offering $5 off of the price of a ticket when guests bring a non-perishable or canned food item to the box office, December 4th-21st 2008.  Donations can be made at the Mt. Pleasant Box Office M-F 12pm-5pm, or at the College of Charleston Sottile Theatre one hour before each performance. For patrons who have already purchased tickets to A Christmas Carol, they will be eligible for $5.00 Off Coupons upon donating cans of food. Coupons can be applied to any production throughout the remainder of Charleston Stage’s current season.  Offer is only available in person upon food can donation, and cannot be applied online or over the phone.

Crisis Ministries provides food, shelter and hope to end homelessness and hunger one person at a time, one family at a time. Crisis Ministries has been providing emergency shelter, transitional housing and supportive services to Charleston, South Carolina’s homeless population since 1984.  The organization was founded by a group of committed individuals representing the faith community, local government, business, and civic organizations.  The organization depends on a staff of 34 and a rotating corps of 4,000 volunteers from the community to deliver services to nearly 2,000 individuals yearly.

For more information on Crisis Ministries, please contact Leigh Danley, Director of Community Relations and Annual Giving, Crisis Ministries at ldanley@charlestonhomless.org or 843-723-9477x:132.  To make a donation and purchase tickets to A Christmas Carol with this special discount, please visit Charleston Stage at the College of Charleston Sottile Theatre (44 George Street) one hour before each performance.
