Can you donate an instrument you no longer need?

“Hi, My name is Abigail Miller. I am in twelth grade at Newton South High School. I am running my fifth instrument donation drive since 2012 because I really enjoy playing music and hope that I can help others get the chance to love it as much as I do. Through a partnership with Berklee College of Music, the instruments I collect will be donated to local nonprofit organizations and schools who provide music education to underserved populations.
