Homelessness isn't just a big city problem.

Tuesday night the Tomahawk community came together to support its homeless students and their families with the Notes for Hope Benefit Concert.

Dozens of musicians performed at Tomahawk High School to raise awareness and money for the homeless kids.

The district's director of instruction says some students are living with friends, while others don't know where to go.

"This year we have 40 students identified. That need has grown over the years and we felt that a concert would be the best way to highlight this issue," said Kelly Welk.

She says the money raised will go toward educational and cultural experiences for the homeless students.

Trips to different musicals and leadership camp are in the works.
