Rachel (name changed) is a 6th grader in his school who loves band. She plays Saxophone and has done quite well. Because Rachel uses a school-owned saxophone, she is allowed to take it home only on a rare occasion. Rachel dreams of having a Saxophone to call her own so she can play at home, nights, weekends – whenever she likes.

Rachel is being raised by her grandmother who lives off her $1,100 a month social security check. (Their rent is $875 monthly.) Grandma works as a home health aid as she can but bad health limits her, and now her car is broken down.

Rachel’s caring grandmother has tried saving money for a Saxophone for Rachel – but something always comes up and the money is never there.

Her School Social Worker called staff to say, “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I discovered this Foundation and read you help with band instruments. There’s no one I’ve found who does that.”

A few days later, Rachel’s dream came true when a brand new saxophone that she can call her very own was delivered to her School Social Worker who presented it to her.

“Christmas showed up all over again.” ~School Social Worker
