Classical Minnesota Public Radio is looking for the gently used saxophone you’ve got stashed in the closet in the guest room.
The station’s Play it Forward program is a drive for individuals to donate instruments to Minnesota schools. This year’s drive is in November, and donors are asked to give an instrument to the school of their choosing. Go to classicalmpr.org/playitforward, enter a ZIP code to find area-specific donation information.
The school will lend the instruments to qualifying students for use in band and orchestra.
Donations are tax deductible. Owners are responsible for assessing the value of their own instruments.
