Want to donate, to Big Brothers and Big Sisters Toronto, a gently used guitar that may need some repairs or is ready to be played? Guitars for Kids Toronto is accepting guitar donations and will fix them at their own expense and then donate the guitars. Those beyond repair get donated to Etobicoke School of The Arts for example and they turn them into art projects. You can send Big Brothers and Big Sisters an e-mail (Alexandra Gruber alexandra.gruber@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca) to let them know you have donated a guitar and where.) Please do not drop off guitars directly to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters offices, they are officially using Guitars for Kids Toronto to collect and ensure they are in proper shape to give to the kids.

      Hi Marianne, thank you for your interest in donating a child’s drum set. CharityWishList.ca is like a directory to help you find a charity near you that wants what you want to give away. CharityWishList.ca doesn’t accept anything itself. You would need to please contact the charity of your choice directly. For Toronto, I would suggest contacting either of the two listed on my website: https://charitywishlist.ca/select-province/ontario/toronto/donate-musical-instruments-toronto-area/

      I hope this information is helpful.
      Thanks for wanting to find a new home for the instrument.
      Michelle Beaupre, Owner, CharityWishList.ca
