DuBois, PA – Give the gift of music this holiday season by donating your instruments and equipment to the DuBois Area School District!

The school is asking you to drop off any instruments, lesson books, unused reeds, valve oil, guitar picks, or any other music supplies to the front office of any DuBois Area school and a local music teacher with get your donation into the hands of a young music student!

The DuBois School District is especially hoping for these donations to be dropped off at the school before Dec. 21. For more information, please contact DASD Assistant Superintendent Wendy Benton.

Melinda Swauger, the DuBois High School band director, says learning an instrument can change a student’s life for the better. Listen to the full interview about the importance of music, recorded earlier this year before the DuBois Marching Band went to a competition.
