Holiday Heroes Instrument Drive1-800-RidofIt had the opportunity again this year to support Jazz.FM91 and Long & McQuade as part of the Holiday Heroes Instrument Drive for Toronto schools in need. We were so pleased with the results.
InstrumentsThis year we collected 125 instruments including woodwinds, percussion, brass, and guitar.
Enough to fill an entire 1-800-Ridofit truck as illustrated by, our owner, Rick Crawford.
Gulfstream Public SchoolThis year's school beneficiary was Gulfstream Public School in North York and we were able to deliver the instruments last week, much to the delight of the Principal, Darshni D'Souza, and the many students led by Karl Mckie, Student Council President and a budding flautist.
The school has expanded from a K-5 to a K-8 school but music was a program that they had not been able to offer. With the new instruments, they are very excited about all the clubs and programs that can be developed.
Lots of SupportMany people were involved in the collection and delivery of the instruments as the following pictures illustrate.
We'd like to thank everyone who helped make the Holiday Heroes Instrument Drive such a success and we'd also like to thank Jazz.FM91 and Long & McQuade for including us in such a rewarding experience.
