I know there are a ton of Gashouse Radio listeners that have some sort of musical instrument just sitting in their garage, or in the back of their closet. Here’s a chance to do something great for someone else. Donate music instruments to children who want to learn! They’ll do a lot more good in a school!
A friend of ours has been working in the music program of an inner city school for years. He writes on Facebook:
So I work in an inner city public school. And I haven’t sniffed a new instrument since I’ve worked there, not even a repair to an old cruddy one. Well my good friends Kyle and Gabrielle have been kind enough to donate an old saxophone that no one is using and that got me to thinking that maybe there are other people on my friends list with old instruments for donation. Flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or any percussion instruments (old drums or cymbals), especially practice pads . My kids use mostly mouse pads because that’s all I can personally afford. So if you have anything worth donating let me know. Thank you.
So please, if you have anything you can spare, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or get a hold of us on Facebook, Twitter, etc. We will make arrangements to get your donations over to the school.
