By PSW Staff • May 26, 2009 Sweetwater Sound has launched a donation campaign designed to provide music gear and instruments to people of limited means who have a genuine interest in music. Sweetwater regularly receives requests for donations of gear from soldiers overseas, disaster victims, foster parents, and nonprofit organizations. Named GearGift, the donation program encourages musicians from across the country to donate old instruments and recording and performance equipment. Sweetwater plans to refurbish the donated gear and ensure that it finds a new home with a deserving individual. Those making donations to the program will be encouraged to designate the kind of recipient – a soldier, a child, a nonprofit, etc. Recipients, in turn, will be asked to respond with a thank you note and a photo or two. These responses will be forwarded to the donor. For more information, call 800-222-4700 or visit the Sweetwater GearGift page online at http://www.sweetwater.com/geargift/. Sweetwater Founder and President Chuck Surack said, “This is just one small way for Sweetwater to give back, and it makes our customers all across the country our partners in that effort.” Sweetwater Sound Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
