Do your kids want to play a musical instrument, but your family can't afford it?
If so, there's help available. The Midwest Region of Hungry for Music provides instruments for families in need.
The organization is looking for donations as part of its first instrument drive in Quincy. The goal is to match children with an instrument and a teacher.
"But when they're able to offer that to their child and see how well their child performs, it's very exciting. It's very exciting for the child to be able to do that and for the parent to see that," Cindy Vahle, Hungry For Music Volunteer, said.
Here's how you can help: Drop off instruments at the Adams County Health Department, or at Time to Play Music at 307 N. 36th St. You can contact Suzi Waters at 217-779-8685.
You can also donate cash to help repair instruments. Donations will be accepted through the end of May.
