Musical instrument donations needed


The East Valley Marine Corps League Detachment #1296 of Sun Lakes is coordinating a donation program in conjunction with the nationwide Wounded Warrior Project. This program involves collecting used or new musical instruments for use in musical therapy programs for returning injured service members.


The types of instruments needed for this program are: guitars, ukuleles, portable keyboards, harmonicas in the key of C, hand drums, percussive instruments and accessories such as guitar strings, electronic tuners, cases for the instruments and bags to store instruments. Instruments need not be in perfect condition.


According to spokesperson June Bahret, use of these instruments in group or individual therapy sessions will provide several benefi ts to the service members including reducing stress, counteracting depression, improving coordination skills, and in some cases, alleviating pain.


To donate items, call Chuck Crist at 480-250-0984 or email chuckc479@gmail.com.
