Clean your closets and donate musical instruments, music stands and other music accessories to Waukegan public school students! Join the CWC instrument recycling drive (April 8 - April 11).
Chicago Wellesley Club is partnering with Bravo Waukegan, a non-profit that brings music to Waukegan Public Schools, as a community service project. Bravo Waukegan provides musical instruments to school children, as well as sponsoring music lessons, uniforms and music camps. Bravo has helped create orchestral groups, jazz bands, a JROTC drum and bugle corps and four mariachi bands in the Waukegan schools. The Waukegan School Board estimates that Bravo reaches between 9,000 -11,000 students.
