UScellular spreads joy with a gift to the Joy of Music School of Music
KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (WATE) – UScellular is working to bring joy this holiday season by donating to the Joy of Music School. The company contacted the school to get their ideal wishlist. From this list, they donated a Mac computer and plan to donate additional equipment valued at $ 1,400.
“It will be a surprise, we hope to deliver it to them shortly before the start of the holiday season in December,” Wayne Mays said with UScellular of the additional equipment.
According to the executive director of the Joy of Music School, the iMac will allow their students to create music like the music they listen to.
“This gives hope because we haven’t had music lessons in the building for over a year and a half. We think that in January we will be able to open and take live lessons here and the kids will see that and they will rock, ”said Francis Graffeo.
The Joy of Music offers free music and instrument lessons to low-income children in the Knoxville area. At the moment, they are looking for people to volunteer to teach. Graffeo said the greatest need was for violin and piano teachers.
This donation is made up of 70 UScellular donations made across the country to help connect with local communities. Organizations ranging from hospitals to local Boys and Girls clubs have received gifts ranging from children’s toys to food donations for local homeless shelters.
