What is Hungry for Music?
Hungry for Music puts quality musical instruments into hungry hands. They serve children who demonstrate a desire to learn music, as well as teachers who have students willing to learn.
In 29 years, they've delivered more than 20,000 instruments to children in all 50 states and 32 countries. Hungry for Music believes that by sharing instruments and musical experiences, children who would not otherwise have the opportunity can experience a kind of freedom and self-discovery that is often stifled in an atmosphere of economic hardship.
How do I volunteer?
Hungry for Music needs volunteers who can provide instrument pick-up and delivery, perform instrument repair, marketing/fundraising, office/administrative tasks, internet research and data entry, and social media.
They also offer a Kids Helping Kids program in which children can create their own musically-related program.
