Helping others is in Long Islanders DNA and Aimée Holtzman is a prime example of that. She started rock CAN roll to help feed the hungry and less fortunate. I have know and worked with her at events for years and she is a true guardian angel. She also has a knack of tapping into artists who will support her cause. In this case Jackson Browne.
They will team up at three of his area shows to combat hunger. Check out the details from Aimée below. If your going to the show support her cause by bringing something. Thank you!

ABOUT: rock CAN roll® Hunger is a tough issue most people prefer to ignore. rock CAN roll is changing that! rock CAN roll is a grassroots, volunteer, 501(c)3, nonprofit, hunger relief organization and think tank whose mission is to be a source that CAN continually restock the shelves of emergency food agencies. rock CAN roll® collaborates with rock concerts, schools, corporate and private events collecting HEALTHY nonperishable food (and basic provisions) for people & PETS, for distribution to local emergency food agencies and into the hands of children, seniors and families who thought they’d otherwise been forgotten.
rock CAN roll® grew out of a love of rock ‘n roll music and a concern for people who live with hunger and in poverty. Their niche to beat hunger and ease the burden of poverty is unique.
Founder and President Aimée Holtzman says her vision for the organization is that rock CAN roll® “CAN” become like recycling. Just as people know to put their recyclables out each week, when they see the rock CAN roll® logo on concert tickets and promotional materials, “FANS will know to BRING CANS” or any nutritious nonperishable food donations to that event. It takes time to start a movement, but Aimée believes with help from those who ‘get it’, it is clear to see that rCr is a fast, quick and easy way to restock
the dwindling shelves of emergency food agencies throughout the country and throughout the world.
