All instruments are accepted; flutes and clarinets are always a need.

Instruments can be dropped off at Oak Ridge Elementary School, 4350 Johnny Cake Ridge Road, in Eagan. If you are not able to bring your donation to Oak Ridge Elementary, email bandforall@district196.org to make other arrangements for donation.

Cash donations are also accepted and may be sent to Valley Middle School, care of Cindy Hanson, 900 Gardenview Drive, Apple Valley, MN 55124. Checks should be made out to District 196 Valley Middle School and write "Band For All" in the memo line.
