This holiday season, give the gift of music to those in need. JAZZ.FM91’s award-winning Holiday Heroes Instrument Drive is now under way for its ninth year.

In partnership with Long & McQuade Musical Instruments and FedEx, we’re asking you to donate your gently used musical instrument that’s in search of a new home. This year, the instruments will be going to the Archie Alleyne Music Academy. We can’t wait to share your gift with them.

You can drop off your instrument in good repair at the JAZZ.FM91 studios in Liberty Village (4 Pardee Ave., Unit 100) or at the Long & McQuade location on Bloor Street (925 Bloor St. W) on or before Thursday, Dec. 23.

For more details, please contact JAZZ.FM91 operations director Michael Booth at
