Hancock County Children's Choir Sings at Dove Award Ceremony

The choir was honored to be invited to sing at the 46th Annual Dove Awards Ceremony on October 13 at the Allen Arena, Lipscomb University, Nashville. They performed as a part of a larger choir from across the nation and sang with the Grammy and Dove Award-winning group Casting Crowns. The trip offered our students an opportunity to be instructed and directed by  Mr. Roy Hayes, Artistic Director for True North Presents as well as an opportunity to meet and greet nationally-known recording artists.

HCCC Receives Major Award from

Tom's of Maine

NEW PALESTINE, Indiana, December 4, 2015 – The Hancock County Children’s Choir (HCCC) has been selected as one of 52 winners from across the country in the seventh annual Tom’s of Maine “50 States for Good” community giving program.  HCCC will receive $20,000 to support our comprehensive vocal education programming that opens doors of opportunity for students aged 5-18 in Hancock and other outlying counties. 

The generous grant from Tom’s of Maine will help the Hancock County Children’s Choir achieve our mission of providing the highest quality vocal training possible, not only through our musical directors, but also by exposing our students to other gifted clinicians through workshops and performance opportunities.  Since our scope of training extends beyond vocal performance to etiquette and deportment, this funding will assist us in providing etiquette training for every student.  Etiquette training helps our students to become poised and confident in both performance and social situations: skills that will serve as lifelong assets for them.  Further, the funding will enable us to perform at meaningful and educational venues like the Indiana State Capitol and local museums, because we will be able to purchase a needed travel piano.  Until now, our venue choices have been limited to those able to provide a piano or to our ability to rent a piano.  Finally, this funding will help us to secure performance venues that are large enough to accommodate our fast-growing community audience.    

“Tom’s of Maine has surely demonstrated their greatheartedness in awarding the Hancock County Children’s Choir with this generous and timely gift. Since its inception, the Hancock County Children’s Choir has been a work of heart supported by a benevolent community. We know that educating the whole child by teaching vocal production, stage presence, poise, and etiquette develops crucial life skills that will benefit our students for a lifetime.  Our community clearly agrees since our membership has grown nearly 600% in 4 years, and our concert audience has also increased exponentially. This gift will allow us to deepen and strengthen our educational program as well as help us acquire needed items for our performances and assure that we will be able to perform in a venue that will seat every audience member. Thank you, Tom’s of Maine, for investing in us so that we can invest in our community!” - Lisa Heady, Executive Director

Passionate community members took to their social media pages to share #OneWaytoHelp their communities, amassing nearly 10,000 submissions.  One entrant representing each state and Washington, D.C. was selected to designate a local nonprofit in his/her area to receive project funding from Tom’s of Maine.

“This year’s nonprofit recipients bring to life an inspiring picture of the care that Americans have for each other and their communities,” said Susan Dewhirst, goodness programs manager at Tom's of Maine. “People often think giving back to their community is time intensive, and we wanted to show there are easy ways to make a difference, like raising awareness for a cause you love and supporting brands that strive to make the world a better place for future generations.” 

Tom’s of Maine has given 10% of profits back to the community since 1970 and encourages employees to use 5% (12 days) of paid time off to volunteer every year. For more information, visit
