National Pawn Donates Instruments and Funds to New Hanover County Music Students
The local business leader involves his team in his commitment to the community
WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, March 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Playing a musical instrument as a child has been shown to improve academic achievement and help young musicians learn critical skills , including patience, responsibility and self-expression. For a North Carolina pawnbroker, the experience of being part of the band as a youngster has been such an impact that he has spent the last twelve years building a legacy by donating thousands of instruments and tens of thousands of dollars in music programs for students who live in the communities where his company’s stores are located.
“We know that every instrument we donate has the power to change lives, and we’ve heard so many inspiring stories from students since we started in 2010,” says Bob Moulton. Passionate about music as a child, Moulton wanted to join his college orchestra in Durham, but financial difficulties made it difficult for his parents to purchase a new instrument. It wasn’t until his mother found an affordable instrument at a yard sale that Moulton was able to live out his musical dreams.
Now a successful businessman, Moulton wants to ensure that every child interested in joining a school music program can take advantage of these opportunities. Over the years they have held unveiling assemblies in Alamance, Cumberland, Durham, Forsyth, Guilford, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, and Wake counties. Even during the pandemic disruptions of the past two years, Moulton made sure local kids had instruments.
At these giving events, Moulton is always accompanied by employees from nearby company stores. Dianna Martinez, who has been with the organization for nearly a year, attended the latest donation of instruments to schools in New Hanover County. “I was so happy to be invited,” she shares, “it made me feel personally appreciated and showed how much this company appreciates the people who live here.”
“It’s the first time I’ve been involved in something like this,” said Amos Santiago, account manager at one of their three Wilmington stores, who was also there, “I was so proud to be able to give back !”
Ariceli Maldonada, an Account Manager who was also in attendance, added, “National Pawn is a very inclusive company, and I couldn’t be more proud of how we support our community!
