Through CCM’s Lonely Instruments for Needy KidS (LINKS) program, you can donate your used instruments to promising young musicians who cannot afford to rent or purchase their own. You can also support the overall program with a gift.
LINKS gathers instruments from the community and places them with needy children in local elementary, middle and high school bands and orchestras, as well as with students in CCM’s Preparatory Department. LINKS also equipped the Cincinnati Public School students who were matched with CCM students in the MelodyMates music mentoring program.
2013 LINKS Collection Days:
- 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday, March 9
- Noon – 5 p.m. Sunday, March 10
Don’t worry if your instrument is not performance-ready. Buddy Roger’s Music generously donates the time to carefully restore, tune and clean each instrument. Don’t have an instrument? You can still assist young musicians who need a helping hand by making a contribution to the LINKS Fund.
Your financial contribution and/or donation of a musical instrument is fully tax-deductible in most cases. Best of all, you’ll be supporting a local child who will personally benefit from your gift of music.
