LINKS Program

Lonely Instruments for Needy Kids

Many young students in our area have the talent and desire to participate in music. But something is missing ... an instrument!

Through LINKS, a project of CCMpower with support from Buddy Roger's Music, Joseph-Beth Booksellers and WGUC 90.9, you can donate your used instruments to promising young musicians who cannot afford to rent or purchase their own. You can also show your support by making a donation to the LINKS program!

LINKS gathers instruments and then places them with needy children in local elementary, middle and high school bands and orchestras — as well as students in the CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement Department. Qualified students are identified by their school's music teacher and a LINKS scholarship application is submitted in the student's name.

The instruments can be new, used and even in adequate condition. Buddy Roger's Music generously donates the time to carefully restore, tune and clean each instrument.

In addition to the satisfaction you'll get from knowing that a child will benefit musically from your gift, you can receive a tax deduction for your donation.
