23 Jun D’Addario Foundation supports strings program
The D’Addario Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the world’s largest maker of guitar strings, has been helping students in under-served communities for years by funding other programs. But this time, it wanted to do it directly, and help people in its own back yard on Long Island.
This cover of Newsday’s LI Life section highlights how students have thrived under the program in the Copiague School District, whose elementary schools hadn’t had a strings program for 3o years under the foundation got involved. The foundation hopes to expand the initiative, but it needs the help of parents, schools and others to make sure that once the programs are started, they keep up the momentum.
