SPOKANE, Wash. — Second Harvest will host its 20th annual Street Music Week to help raise money for families in need.

Street Music Week involves volunteer performers playing music in the street, carrying red buckets to collect donations.

“Second Harvest is honored to celebrate the 20th year for Street Music Week with Doug and the wonderful group of volunteers and performers who make this happen,” said Jason Clark, president and CEO of Second Harvest. “To everyone who puts dollars into the musicians’ red buckets or donates online, thank you for helping us serve families facing hunger.”

The event will be held from Monday, June 13 to Friday, June 17, during the noon hours at the Garland District and downtown Spokane, as well as Sherman Avenue in Coeur d’Alene.

There will also be an online version of Street Music Week.

Street Music Week has raised $290,000 over the last 19 years, which averages to about 1.4 million meals, Clark said.
