A week and a half ago, Eliza Junkerman, daughter of a staffer at White Center Heights Elementary School, shared the story of her campaign to get more musical instruments donated so more of its students could take music classes from a promising new teacher. Tonight, she shares a followup, and an invitation to those who donated:
We have had an amazing turnout and some extremely generous people from West Seattle, White Center and beyond. I just wanted to give you a quick recap of what we have collected so far (or have set a time to pick up):
1 set of Congo drums
1 Alto Saxophone
This is really way more than we could have ever expected! Thank you to everyone who helped – spreading the word, donating, and just supporting!!
White Center Heights will be holding an Assembly to honor the donors and talk about what encompasses a community, on October 30th from 1:20-1:55. All donors are invited to attend!!
Thank you so much for your help!
White Center Heights Elementary is at 10015 6th Avenue SW; here’s a map.
