The Gift Of Music Instrument Drive

bcap, Datacet, The Bubble FM, UROCK Marketing LLC and The Press Room are teaming up to make this Thanksgiving extra special for the Portsmouth Schools music department!

Portsmouth Instrument Drive 2014 WXGR bcap Datacet UROCK Marketing The Press Room

We all know at least a couple of people with old, gently used or extra musical instruments laying around the house, or up in the attic collecting dust. What if we got all those instruments together and gave them to some young, impressionable and eager music makers?

Instruments can be dropped off NOV 1 UNTIL NOV 29 at:
PMAC (973 Islington St)
Summer Sessions (15 Vaughn Mall)
or bring them with you to The Press Room the night of the event!

The music will kick of at 8pm on Saturday, November 29 with an Acoustic Open Mic hosted by Duke Mandell. Open Mic goes from 8-10pm.

Immediately following the Open Mic, from 10-late, Datacet (bcap & Ryan Obermiller) will take the stage with Special Guest Mike Marchand & His Visual Orchestra

For over 30 years Hampton Firefighters have held a toy drive during the holiday season to collect toys for children whose families are experiencing difficult times. Firefighters and their families and friends gather as Christmas nears to wrap hundreds of toys collected from the generous community and a few days later, Santa Claus delivers the wrapped toys to the children at a holiday party.

As the holiday season approaches if you have a new, unwrapped toy that you want to donate you can bring it to the “The Shining Starts of Hampton’s Future” Christmas Parade on Sat. Dec. 6, 2014, at 1:00 P.M,  where firefighters and employees of Hannaford will help collect toys.

Or drop off unwrapped new toys at either fire station in Hampton:
Station #1 at 64 Ashworth Avenue and Station #2 at 140 Winnacunnet Rd. or at one of the drop off locations throughout town:
