Donations Fall & Winter 2019 - 2020

Many, many thanks to the friends and alumni of Arrowbear who donated to our Scholarship Fund. Donations from the Fall Newsletter totaled an astonishing $62,749. We are particularly grateful because we know these are difficult times with families in dire economic straits from the various state mandated stay-at-orders. Numerous businesses have temporarily closed putting thousands of people out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All of the donations will go toward scholarships for this coming summer and Summer 2021. We want to especially thank Morey’s Music Store who has faithfully donated to our efforts for over 30 years. They never hesitate to help young musicians go to music camp.

Every donation is appreciated. We receive amounts from $10 to hundreds of dollars. It all adds up. Don’t worry about waiting until you can give more at some point in the future. Any amount makes a difference. It’s always a wonderful surprise to visit the mailbox and hear how you’re doing and what is keeping you busy. Please keep in touch and give when you can.
