Valley Park Middle School gets a hand from annual Holiday Heroes program

A number of gently used musical instruments donated by JAZZ.FM91 listeners have found a new home at Valley Park Middle School in Toronto’s Thorncliffe Park neighbourhood.

Monday morning’s delivery wrapped up the eighth year of JAZZ.FM91’s award-winning Holiday Heroes instrument drive, operated in partnership with Long & McQuade Musical Instruments and FedEx Canada.

These generously donated instruments will help expand the “vibrant and growing” music program at Valley Park Middle School.

“It’s really exciting,” says vice-principal and former music teacher Christine Pouliot. “We’re very honoured to be the recipients this year. I have a feeling that all the students at Valley Park are going to be excited about getting their hands on these new instruments.”

Thank you to everyone who donated an instrument.
