ATHENS DRIVE ARTS FOUNDATION
January 31, 2011
I am a member of the Athens Drive Band Boosters Board of Directors and have first-hand knowledge of the impact that Athens Drive Arts Foundation has had on our program and the 144 students we served this year. In particular, we have several students this year who were not able to afford to be in the band and did not have an instrument to play. Because of the donations made to the Band Boosters by the Arts Foundation, five students have been given the opportunity to be a part of a program that has changed their futures and renewed their confidence. Success in the band has given these students a sense of accomplishment and renewed self-esteem. Our program and the valuable participation by the Arts Foundation have made a dramatic impact in the futures of these individuals.
