Fender Brings the Gift to New York Children
Representatives of Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, KMCMusicorp and New York music retailer Sam Ash, presented 20 student-size Fender, Applause and Jasmine brand classical-style acoustic guitars, gig bags and electronic guitar tuners to the music program at the P.S. 317Q Waterside Children's Studio School in Queens, New York. The school suffered significant losses due to Hurricane Sandy and funds are not currently available to completely rebuild the music program. In addition, five student-size Fender acoustic guitars, gig bags and electronic guitar tuners were presented to KidCare and Homes for the Homeless, in support of KidCare's ongoing work with Homes for the Homeless Summer Camps for inner-city kids. Since 1989, Homes for the Homeless has served more than 14, 000 homeless children, ages 6 to 13, at two sleep away camps located less than an hour outside New York City. A representative of the sponsoring charity, KidCare, and Queens Borough President, Helen Marshall were also there to thank Fender, KMCMusicorp and Sam Ash for their support. KidCare is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping underprivileged and homeless children. In addition, KidCare is helping to support and rebuild the Rockaway community from the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.
As one of the world's leading musical instrument manufacturers, marketers and distributors, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) has supported children's music education programs including Girl Rock Nation, the Fender Music Foundation, Little Kids Rock, Oprah's Big Give, Dr. Phil's The Power Of Music and The Kids Rock Free Music Education Program at the Fender Center in Corona, California.
