San Diego's Jazz 88.3
annual Music Matters Instrument Drive
is upon us! For one month, beginning May 1st
, San Diegans can donate their used musical instruments at any Coles Fine Flooring
location, or, at the Jazz 88.3 business office. All instruments will be refurbished and distributed among San Diego City School music programs. And, this year, the Julian Union School District
will also be a benefactor! With your help, this could be our most successful Music Matters Instrument Drive yet! So if you have an instrument that you no longer need or use, feel free to dust it off and drop it off and help keep San Diego's youth musically-inspired!
