"Play It Again" Musical Instrument Recycling Campaign to Benefit the Upper Pinellas Association for Retarded Citizens (UPARC) Foundation
The Upper Pinellas Association for Retarded Citizens (UPARC) and Piano Distributors of Clearwater come together to announce an exciting program.
To celebrate the spirit of recycling this Earth Day, Piano Distributors of Clearwater is launching the "Play It Again" Musical Instrument Recycling campaign to encourage the universal language of music making by all citizens, and in particular, the people at the Upper Pinellas Association for Retarded Citizens (UPARC) Foundation.
The "Play It Again" Musical Instrument Recycling campaign will begin on Wednesday, April 16, and run through the end of the day Wednesday, April 23. Area residents are encouraged to dust off those instruments that have been sitting in the closet or underneath the bed for way too long and drop them off at Piano Distributors (Hwy. 19 and Ulmerton Road) at 6170 Ulmerton Road in Clearwater. All of the instruments collected will be donated to the citizens at UPARC.
"There is nothing better than playing music," says Gail Polk of Piano Distributors of Clearwater. "Music making is a wonderful reprieve from the stresses of every day life. We wanted to give back to the community this Earth Day, and we thought this would be the perfect venue for us. Every person who wants to play a musical instrument deserves a chance to do so. Playing an instrument is a great way to promote wellness, academic benefits and self-confidence."
