Help Rebuild the Union Beach Memorial School Band
Union Beach Memorial School was devastated by Hurricane Sandy, and all the band instruments and sheet music were destroyed.
Unlike many wealthier school districts whose music programs have been eliminated due to a budget crunch, Memorial School has managed to maintain their program.
In this town where many of the students' homes have been destroyed, the children are looking forward to playing a Winter Concert. These kids need a break and some joy at holiday time. Please consider donating a playable instrument you no longer use or one that your kids have outgrown.
Instruments can be dropped off at the Union Beach Board of Education Office, 1207 Florence Ave., Union Beach.
They can also be mailed to that address to the attention of M. Metz, Music Teacher. If you will include your name and address with your donation, you will be sent a receipt for tax purposes.
Donations of Gift Cards will also will be appreciated for purchasing what is not donated. They can be mailed to the same address.
Here is a list of the instruments needed:
2 Tenor Drums
4 Snare Drums
1 Tama Hi Hat 10 Flutes 10 Clarinets
1 Bass Clarinet
8 Alto Saxes
1 Tenor Sax
1 Baritone Horn
