WHERE TO DONATE USED MUSIC INSTRUMENTS, LIKE GUITARS, VIOLINS, ETC.
GUITARS FOR VETS (GUITAR DONATIONS CANADA WIDE)
Your donation of a guitar can help change the life of a veteran in need.
Do you have an extra guitar that hasn’t been played as much as it should? Please consider donating it to Guitars for Vets, where it will be recruited to play a lead role in the music rehabilitation programming for a veteran who needs it most.
Drop-off locations: Guitars can be dropped off at any Long and McQuade music store across the country. See here for more information:
