The Band for All program in District 196 is collecting gently used instruments to be used by students who could not otherwise afford to participate in band.
Instrument donations can be dropped off at Oak Ridge Elementary School, 4350 Johnny Cake Ridge Road, Eagan. To receive a donation letter for tax purposes, include name, address and phone number on a piece of paper inside the instrument case.
Those unable to bring their donation to Oak Ridge can email firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements for donation.
Cash donations are also accepted to make needed repairs to the instruments and to purchase supplies for the students who use them. Cash donations may be sent to Valley Middle School, care of Cindy Hanson, 900 Gardenview Drive, Apple Valley, MN 55124. Checks should be made out to District 196 Valley Middle School and write “Band For All” in the memo line.
