The organizer for Music for HOPE made the first donation, at a Central Fresno School.

Valley Arts and Science Academy received seven instruments, through the organization.

Volunteers with Music for HOPE refurbish instruments that are donated to them. Then bring various campuses the instruments they request.

VASA received three clarinets, three trumpets and a saxophone. The school's executive director says this will tremendously help with the school's music program.

Anyone with instruments they want to donate, or schools that are interested in getting help from Music for HOPE can contact the group's organizer by going to their website.
