A time to give back
For King & Country has partnered with The Salvation Army for a national toy drive that asks concertgoers to bring new, unwrapped toys that will be collected by representatives from the local Salvation Army. They will then distribute the toys to struggling families during the Christmas season.
“It has been a difficult year for so many. Now more than ever, we felt compelled to get out on the road in a safe and socially distanced way to spread the joy and spirit of Christmas in the best way we know – by sharing a night of music celebrating the greatest hope the world has ever known. But we did not want the night to end after the last car leaves the parking lot, so we chose to partner with The Salvation Army and their Rescue Christmas Campaign – to bring toys to families unable to afford them,” Joel Smallbone of For King & Country says.
“This is a cause that is dear to us. We came to this country from Australia and were headed for bean burritos and gifts from the dollar shop before an act of kindness from a first-grade school class gave us a Christmas that we will never forget. They provided our family with food and toys to celebrate the holidays and for that reason, we are so proud and honored to be partnering with The Salvation Army to share a bit of joy with others that might be facing the same fate this Christmas,” Joel Smallbone continues.
For King & Country has been active since 2007 and has released three studio albums. The duo’s new Christmas album, “A drummer Boy Christmas,” will be released on October 30th.
