Musical instruments for children needed

PROVIDENCE – The Instruments for Children Program of the Rhode Island Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society is seeking donations of used or new musical instruments for children who express an interest in their school music programs, and would not be able to participate without help.

The group is seeking flutes, trumpets, saxophones, trombones, clarinets, string instruments, electronic keyboards, beginner drums, etc.

There is also a special request for a baritone sax for a student.

The organization fully restores the donated instruments before they reach the schools. These instruments will be provided to children for whom this activity would otherwise be a financial hardship.

According to organizers, the program has provided more than 300 musical instruments to students in Rhode Island schools.
