The origins of Strangers Helping Strangers dates back to late 1997, when two fans of the Burlington, Vermont-based band Strangefolk, Kat Harless and Tina Campbell, saw an opportunity to help those less fortunate by collecting non-perishable food at various Strangefolk concerts throughout the Northeast USA and donating it to food banks and charities in the cities and towns Strangefolk played. The first official food drive was held in 1998, and since then SHS has collected items for charities all over the country. In addition to working closely with Strangefolk, SHS has expanded over the years to work with hundreds of other bands.
