.Donate to the Upcoming Musical Instrument Drive

musicforschoolsGot some spring cleaning to do? Have an old trumpet or guitar or even a tambourine taking up space in your closet? Now’s your chance to de-clutter and help a student in need at the same time. The Luther Burbank Center for the Arts is hosting a Musical Instrument Drive this Saturday, May 7, at Montgomery Village in Santa Rosa, where students from across Sonoma County will perform while any and all instruments are accepted for donation, to go to the Luther Burbank Center’s Music for Schools program.
The program’s mission is simple; provide instruments to kids who otherwise could not afford one. Since it’s widely known that musical education is an important aspect to a well-rounded education, this outreach program is important.
Music for Schools relies on instrument and cash donations (for repair) to place instruments into the hands of students from low-income families. This weekend’s drive is one of the program’s major donation days, and local students who have already received these gifts will be on hand to display their talents. As an added bonus, anyone who donates an instrument will get a box of See’s Candies Springtime Truffles (while supplies last.)
