It has come to the music department's attention year after year that there are students who would like to participate in band but can not due to financial reasons. CWLS would like to reach out to the community to help make band an option for all students through a program we have named LINKs (Lonely Instruments Need Kids). There are two ways to contribute to LINKs.
1. If you have an instrument in your home that is no longer being played, it can be donated in any condition. Instrument value certifications can be issued free of charge for tax deduction forms.
2. CWLS will also open an instrument fund where any monetary donations can be made. This fund will be specifically designated to provide students with financial restrictions the opportunity to participate in band by supplying them with an instrument and necessary equipment for up to all three years of middle school.
Donations may be made out to:
CW-LINKs and mailed to or dropped off at Canal Winchester Middle School

If you have questions regarding the program, please contact Rachel Sirey (Middle School Band Director) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614 828-2234 ext. 4933
