July News - Protect Your Family & Protect our Music Programs!
MusicCounts! is holding a fundraiser by selling PPE—Personal Protective Equipment—that will not only protect your family but also help the music programs in all of Canton’s public schools.
MusicCounts! is a non-profit group, run entirely by volunteers, that raises money each year to benefit all students—paying for music lessons, guest artists, instruments, sheet music, piano tuning—and much more!
“Let’s face it,” says Bekki Kowalski, MusicCounts! president, “We’ll be needing PPE for some time to come. And even though it’s now more readily available in stores, these are very good products at a very good price. And you’ll have them just before Labor Day—to be prepared for school or other activities that may be active again.”
Ordering is easy! All the products are available online at: musiccountsincanton.org. Place your order by August 8th —and then MusicCounts! volunteers will deliver the products directly to your home or business—within 2 weeks—at no charge! Deliveries can only be made in Canton and surrounding towns.
“It’s a full line of PPE,” Kowalski says. “Sanitizer, face masks, face shields, infrared thermometers, and a really nifty no-touch tool that lets you safely use touch screens, buttons and doors.”
MusicCounts! asks that you help them help the schools. Covid-19 has affected our lives for months and will probably continue to do so for months to come.
“If we have to prepare,” Kowalski says, “we may as well help our schools at the same time.”
