The St. Vrain School District’s Fine Arts program is asking the community to consider donating gently used instruments to students across the district.
The annual drive will be held on Sept. 26 from noon to 4 p.m. and Sept. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Instruments should be dropped off at the Lincoln School building located at 619 Bowen St. in Longmont.
The district is looking for gently used instruments of all kinds except upright pianos or keyboards.
“Donated instruments are housed in the classroom for students to use during class or available for them to rent long-term. Additional instruments allow families to try out an instrument without making a purchase. More unique donations enhance the district’s music programming by introducing new styles of instruments into the classroom,” the district stated in a news release.
All donations will be cleaned, tuned and repaired before being distributed to schools across the district. The instruments will be awarded to schools via a raffle system which will be held on a teacher professional development day, the district said.
