Donate your gently-used musical instruments to Hilton
has found that learning music facilitates learning other
subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in
other areas. Unfortunately, not all parents can afford the
cost of renting or purchasing a musical instrument for their
beginning music student. That is why the Hilton School
District is asking the community to search their closets,
basements, and attics for gently used musical
instruments that they can donate to the Hilton Elementary
There is a need for bass
clarinets, bassoons, clarinets, flutes, oboes, and
trumpets. Once the instrument is donated, the
donation must be approved by the Board of Education, and
then an acknowledgement letter is sent for tax purposes.
“Our instrument donation program at Village Elementary has
allowed over 30 students to start a musical instrument that
did not have the financial means otherwise,” said Beth
Fabrizio, music teacher.
Donations may be dropped off at any of the three elementary
schools: Northwood Elementary School, 433 N. Greece Rd.;
Quest Elementary School, 225 West Ave.; or Village
Elementary School, 100 School Lane, or pick up can be
arranged by calling the school’s main office.
