MARCH 17 I FENDER, LITTLE KIDS ROCK I DONATION
Fender Donates Drums to Little Kids
Fender is celebrating “Music in Our Schools Month” in March by donating 262 Starcaster drum sets to Little Kids Rock, a non-profit organization that provides free instruments and lessons to low-income public school students.
“We’re very excited about our drum set donation to Little Kids Rock,” said Bob Morris, Fender’s director of music education. “We know this will go miles in helping children and school music programs nationwide.”
Little Kids Rock founder David Wish said the drums would be dispersed throughout the program, now active in more than 700 schools in 19 cities nationwide.
“This is an amazing gift and an inspired way to celebrate Music in Our Schools Month,” Wish said. “It’s the largest single drum donation in our history, and it comes on the heels of a partnership with Fender where they supply us with guitars. This makes Fender our top corporate benefactor, and they are having a profound impact on the lives of economically disadvantaged kids who are now getting the chance to learn music.”
