Giant Tiger Ltd. has launched #ThankYou Sessions livestream concert series in support of Food Banks Canada.
he weekly musical performances, featuring Anthem Records recording artists, will stream live every Wednesday at 8pm ET from April 15-May 27, 2020 on Giant Tiger's official Facebook page.
The first artist announced as part of the series is rising Canadian country star, Eric Ethridge, who is set to perform his hits, premiere unreleased songs from his new EP 'Forever With You' and chat with viewers about his musical journey.
Giant Tiger is also making a donation to support Food Banks Canada with each performance to help fund food for the vulnerable in communities across the country. The concert series aims to thank everyday heroes for helping with the COVID-19 response, and unite Canadians at home in communities coast-to-coast, through the power of live music, all while social distancing.
"We truly appreciate the countless everyday heroes who are helping in the response to COVID-19," said Paul Wood, president and Chief Operating Officer, Giant Tiger Stores Ltd. "The #ThankYou Sessions, which will bring Canadians together virtually through a shared love of music and community, is just one of the many ways we have chosen to give back."
The Ottawa-based national retailer continues to be committed to giving back and recently donated 20,000 medical-grade masks to The Ottawa Hospital to support the medical community in the fight against COVID-19.
Local Giant Tiger stores remain focused on giving back to their local communities during this time as well.
