The Community Cadence Foundation is Nanaimo's newest local charity. The CCF has evolved out of an annual event within the local community named, Hip Hop's Toys for Tots. The yearly event has now formed into a foundation, as of September 2017, and will provide local low income families with aid in times of need. Year round events including a winter and summer concert will be of the many ways we will use our platform to give back to the community.
The Community Cadence Foundation will be hosting the 6th annual Christmas charity event, Hip Hops Toys for Tots, on November 22nd, 2019, at the The Globe. This year we have Vancouvers Junk headlining the event. As one of western Canada's greatest freestylers and all around great hip hop artist, Junk is bound to put on a show. We will also have performances by local Nanaimo MC's Kavawon and Mikey Money, QB, Oktiv6, Mike Sherm and a yound up and comer, Skrill250. All proceeds from the event go towards local low income families within the community of Nanaimo to help put Christmas presents under their trees, and food in their kitchens.
New and unused TOY DROP ZONES are located this year at Johnny's Barber Shop and The Nail Lounge.
To date our efforts have provided Christmas presents, groceries, and financial aid in times of need to almost 80 families, with over 150 children in total.
The Community Cadence Foundation exists to provide low income families with aid and support in times of need. The CCF uses live performance events and other grass roots methods to acquire donations. All proceeds are put directly back into the community, to help struggling families raise their children.
