ACS Instrument Drive 2014

Have an old instrument stored away in a closet or attic somewhere? Why not donate it to the Athens Christian School Band! We are running out of instruments for students to play and are in desperate need of additional horns. Flutes, Clarinets, Saxophones, Trumpets, Trombones, Baritones, and Tubas - we need them all, especially low brass! We will gladly accept them in any condition, fix them, clean them, and put them in the hands of a student who needs an instrument. Please consider supporting our band by donating your disused instrument to Athens Christian School.
