Strings, guitars, brass, woodwind and percussion
That's what Horns for Kids needs
Anyone who might have "a gently used musical instrument" that’s gathering dust somewhere can consider donating it to "a deserving Connecticut school by contacting Horns For Kids."
Organization officials said in a statement that Horns For Kids will have the instrument repaired and cleaned, then award it to a deserving school, based on need.
Instruments are posted on the Horns For Kids website. Music teachers and administrators can download the simple application, the statement said. All instruments awarded are clean, playable, and in excellent condition, the statement said.
Horns For Kids is a non-profit organization that supports music education in Connecticut schools and awards donated instruments to deserving school music programs throughout the state, the statement said.
Since 2003, more than 300 Connecticut schools have received instrument awards, the statement said.
To donate an instrument not presently being used, contact Horns For Kids by calling 203- 288-9771 weekdays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All instruments are needed: bowed strings, guitars, brass, woodwind and percussion, the statement said.
Well-kept acoustic and electric pianos in good condition also are needed.
All instrument donations are tax-deductible, the statement said.
Horns For Kids is the charitable arm of The Great CT Traditional Jazz Festival and is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation, the statement said. It receives generous financial support from Ronald McDonald House Charities of CT and Western Massachusetts.
