Music for Minors II joins East Bay Give for fundraiser
Submitted By Veera Kazak
There is always time for music. And in the Tri-City area, youngsters in the Music for Minors II (MFMII) program do their best to hit all the right notes. The organization tries to make up for music funding cuts in schools by recruiting, training and supporting community volunteers to nurture the love and literacy of music in childrenÕs classrooms. MFMII also sponsors music workshops for teachers and community concerts.
The organization has 81 music docent volunteers serving almost 4,500 students in 40 schools in the Tri-City area. They also provide five music resource centers.
To help the group, and keep music alive in schools, the East Bay Community Foundation through its East Bay Give program is partnering with Music for Minors II to raise $10,000 in 24 hours at a May the 4th Be With You! event on Thursday, May 4.
There are several ways people can help boost donations. Among them:
¥ Encourage friends and family to make a donation on May 4.
¥ Visit the MFMII Facebook page and download a copy of the East Bay Give postcard and share with others
¥ Distribute a few postcards at your work or community locations.
