Drew Costic, who is attempting to become an Eagle Scout of Troop 97, has recently started an instrument donation drive for students of Springfield elementary schools. Donations can be made in the form of slightly used instruments or money donations, with the proceeds going toward purchasing instruments for the students.

Costic, a 16-year-old student who attends Glenwood High School, said the donation project is a way for him to fulfill his leadership project requirement to become an Eagle Scout.

“I was looking for an idea that I liked for my project and my mom suggested that because I play a lot of instruments (bass guitar, piano and drums) I should look into something like that. I started looking around and realized that there are a lot of kids who can’t afford to play musical instruments,” Costic said.   

The instrument donation drive lasts  till Wednesday, June 20. Standard band instruments, including all brass and woodwind instruments, can be donated. Guitars are also accepted.

For more information contact Drew Costic at 217-529-9779 or at instrumentdonation@gmail.com. More information about the donation drive is also available on the facebook page Springfield Instrument Drive. After receiving a call or email, the Scouts will arrange a time and place to come pick up the instruments, while also providing a receipt for the donation.
