Guitar for Vets Canada Receives 85 Guitars!
Guitars for Vets Canada was thrilled to receive 85 guitars on Saturday (18 March 2017) – collected by Ottawa radio station Rebel 101.7.
The donation drive was kicked off by caring community member Dave Bradly in February, who upon reading about the Guitars for Vets Canada program, approached Rebel 101.7 for support. The radio station has been requesting donations via the radio and social media, and has been overwhelmed by the response.
“We are so thrilled that Rebel 101.7 was able to garner so many guitar donations,” says Sean Trottier, Guitars for Vets Ottawa Lead. “Guitars for Vets runs on volunteers and donations made by the community, so this is very meaningful for us.” James Van Wort, Guitars for Vets Ontario Lead adds: “This guitar drive will allow so many more veterans to explore the healing power of music – this is truly a beautiful gift, and we thank each and every individual who donated. ”
