Frederick County schools promote 'Join the Band Fund'

December 03, 2007

FREDERICK, Md. - Frederick County Public Schools started a "Join the Band Fund" in 2004 to put musical instruments in the hands of students who want to learn to play but can't afford to.

Area musician Andy Carignan and "The Wise Guys" launched the fund and have raised more than $3,000 during local music performances, according to a school system press release.

Individuals and groups interested in helping the fund reach its goal can send tax-deductible contributions, payable to the "Community Foundation Join the Band Fund," to the Community Foundation of Frederick County, 312 E. Church St., Frederick, MD 21701.

For information about helping fund instruments for students, contact Gwen Drescher at 301-696-6883 or business partnerships coordinator Jim Ferrant at 301-644-5121.
