Project: Tacoma-Pierce Country Crimestoppers Music In Schools.
In 2012, Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County began working with schools in Pierce County to provide musical instruments to underprivileged students. Their goal is to provide these students with access to school music programs to keep them involved in activities and off the streets of our community. Their program has donated a full drumline to students at Giaudrone Middle School in Tacoma, Key Peninsula Middle School in Lakebay, and Orting High School in Orting. Source.
