Representatives of Fender, KMCMusicorp and New York music retailer Sam Ash presented 20 student-size Fender, Applause and Jasmine brand classical-style acoustic guitars, gig bags and electronic guitar tuners to the music program at the P.S. 317Q Waterside Children’s Studio School in Queens, New York. The school suffered significant losses due to Hurricane Sandy and funds are not currently available to completely rebuild the music program.
In addition, five student-size Fender acoustic guitars, gig bags and electronic guitar tuners were presented to KidCare and Homes for the Homeless, in support of KidCare’s ongoing work with Homes for the Homeless Summer Camps for inner-city kids. Since 1989, Homes for the Homeless has served more than 14,000 homeless children, ages 6 to 13, at two sleep away camps located less than an hour outside New York City.
