GIFFORD — Gifford Youth Activities Center is looking for musical instruments for their Band Instrument Loan Program. GYAC needs brass, woodwind and percussion instruments for students in school band programs. The donated instruments remain the property of GYAC and parents or guardians sign a contract that they will maintain the instruments in working order as long as they are on loan. This program allows students who cannot afford to rent or buy their own musical instruments to participate in music education and performance. Research studies show that music students outperform non-music students on many standardized tests. Instruments can be dropped off at the Gifford Youth Activities Center 4875 43rd Ave. in Gifford. Persons who wish to have their instrument donation picked up should call Freddie Woolfork (772) 794-1005, ext. 34.
