FORT BEND ISD – Fort Bend ISD’s Fine Arts Department is accepting donations of used band instruments from the public. Beginning Friday, May 17, community members can drop off their used band instruments at the FBISD Administration Building (16431 Lexington Blvd., Sugar Land, 77479) during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). Donations will be accepted for the remainder of the school year and throughout the summer.
Former band members are encouraged to check their attics, closets and storage units for instruments to donate, which will help ensure current students have the band equipment they need to be successful. Donated instruments will assist students, who otherwise might not be able to afford a band instrument, a chance to participate in beginning band programs across the District.
