The holidays have passed, Santa has made his way back to the North Pole, and snow is threatening the Lower Mainland, which means it is time to report on the SHORE 104.3 Adopt an Instrument drive!
We with the Music BC Charitable Foundation are overjoyed to be able to report that the instrument drive held in partnership with Long & McQuade was an outstanding success. Dozens upon dozens of instruments were donated, as well as large quantities of sheet music and music books. We couldn’t be more happy with the results, and can’t thank everyone enough who took part! Each one of these instruments will benefit students in this province in their efforts to have their lives enriched by music.
While the campaign may be over, we are still accepting instruments! Instruments can be dropped to the offices of SHORE 104.3 year round. In addition, donations by mail or by paypal go a very long way to getting musical education out there. Through our buying power and sponsors, we are able to put every dollar to great use.
Special thanks to SHORE 104.3 for putting together this fantastic instrument drive, and to Long & McQuade for carrying drop boxes for all these donations!
