Support Shakori Hills JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians) This Giving Tuesday!
Shakori Hills JAM provides low to no-cost lessons in fiddle, mandolin and guitar, teaching students how to play together as a string band. Right now, Shakori Hills JAM serves students from five Chatham County schools, along with homeschoolers, and we have a great bunch of kids who are learning skills that will last them a lifetime, as well as making new friends in a safe and friendly environment.
This Giving Tuesday (November 27) and in coming days we are raising money to fund our Spring and Fall 2019 semesters. Our Spring semester runs from early March through May with a performance at the Spring 2019 Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance! Funds raised will be used to pay teachers, help us expand our repertoire of classes, and provide new instruments, strings and enrichment workshops.
All donations are 100% tax deductible. On Giving Tuesday, Facebook and PayPal will match donations made on Facebook up to a total of $250k and $20k per donor on a first-come, first-served basis (matching starts at 8:00 am until funds run out, so don’t wait)! Your support helps us to keep the program alive, giving children the chance to learn to play a musical instrument. Music adds an important dimension to the lives of children and music instruction is always of enormous benefit to the community.
