I approached Steve from Stanroy’s Music with a need for a used trumpet, which was the request from a young client at California Children’s Services. Santa had “sticker shock” when I was told the cost was $400 to $800 for a quality used trumpet. After learning about our program, Steve was eager to help.
I received a call from Steve four days before Christmas. Shortly after leaving Stanroy’s, a gentleman came in and simply wanted to dispose of a used trumpet with case. With time and care, the trumpet was brought back to life and donated to the Santa Tim program and is now in the hands of a deserving young man.
This story is another example of how our community comes together to help those who are less fortunate.
