MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - If you’re hoping to de-clutter your house in the new year, a new organization in Marquette is looking for donations of musical instruments.
The Marquette Music Pantry is helping out those that want to play music, but can’t afford an expensive instrument. They also have volunteers who can provide lessons to first time players.
They collect donations using their Facebook page and website. After fixing the instruments, they’ll make them available to those in need.
The program aims to help area residents have better access to a life long hobby.
“Well, I just know that music is a very powerful thing, music is something everybody can relate to, everyone likes music. I’ve been playing music for most of my life and it’s been a really powerful thing for me, so I want to be able to give that to as many people as possible,” said Noah Bauer, Organizer of the Marquette Music Pantry.
The first instrument giveaway event will take place on Feb. 22, at Superior Culture in Marquette.
