“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to let you know about an incident that happened this weekend at the Thomas Circle Singers (TCS) Christmas concert at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Northwest DC. I’m a singer in the group, and I serve as Secretary for the Board of Directors.

TCS performed their holiday concert, Sing We All Nowell on Sunday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Northwest DC. For almost 40 years, TCS has fulfilled its dual mission of bringing high-quality choral performances to the community, and donating concert proceeds to local organizations that address the needs of our city’s underserved citizens. This year, we have partnered with Thrive DC – a Columbia Heights-based organization working to prevent and end homelessness by providing vulnerable individuals a comprehensive range of services to help stabilize their lives.

On Sunday, during this beautiful concert, of which a portion of the proceeds went to help Thrive DC, 15 credit cards from six performers were stolen from the basement of the church. We feel this is something that should be highlighted during a season of giving and hope — especially because TCS works so hard to give back to the community. District police have been notified, and we are hopeful that we can get to the bottom of this.”
