Ecorse Public Schools District Superintendent Dr. Josha Talison, ‘The Gift Of A Musical Instrument Can Transform Lives’

Musical Instrument Donation Drive at Ecorse Public Schools This Weekend

Ecorse Public Schools will be holding its first Musical Instrument Donation Drive on Saturday, September 28, 2019, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Ecorse High School 27385 W. Outer Dr. Ecorse, MI 48229 to benefit the Ecorse school community. The district’s goal is to raise $30,000 and/or to secure the musical instruments identified on the list below.

“The gift of a new or gently used musical instrument can transform lives. Research shows that children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education,” explains Ecorse Public Schools District superintendent, Dr. Josha Talison.

The district is also actively seeking sponsors of its up-coming musical instrument drive, the donations of new or gently used musical instruments and financial donations to its musical instrument fund.
