SCA volunteers respond to requests from people who live within the borders of the Sequim School District. Help usually is in the form of money for utilities and rent, but connections to other types of aid are common. Funds are donated from within the community.
The name Handel With Care originated at San Francisco University High School, which hosts this sing-along every Christmas as a fundraiser for youth programs.
There will be an intermission with punch and cookies provided by Dungeness Schoolhouse Christmas Tea.
Shirts, tote bags and coffee mugs with a logo will be for sale with proceeds going to SCA.
