The value of a donation to the Summerville Bands can be measured in the many ways it impacts the lives of the young people it affects. Every day, students benefit from the joy of music, the joy of friendships, the joy of belonging, the joy of family, the structure of discipline and leadership, and the long-term growth all these elements work together to afford!
Every donation, no matter the size, impacts the lives of students in lasting ways.
What does it take? How can I help?
