Long & McQuade Music Therapy Drive

Nov 01, 2021 - Dec 31, 2021

Listening to live music can be very powerful and for sick and injured kids, it’s just what the doctor ordered.

Long & McQuade is holding its 15th annual Music Therapy Fundraising Drive, benefiting music therapy and music-focused programs for kids across the country. From now until December 31st, make a donation of $1 or more, and you’ll receive a $5 rental coupon for use any time in 2022.

In Manitoba, your donation will support the HSC Children’s Hospital Music therapy program. Music therapy comes in many different forms. For younger kids it might mean giving them a simple instrument like a shaker, so they can play along while someone from the music therapy team strums a guitar. Older children might learn how to play an instrument like the ukulele. The music therapy program also includes giving kids access to CD players and sound machines, so they can fill their environment with soothing sounds.

To support this cause, you can donate online or visit any Winnipeg Long & McQuade store: 1845 Pembina Hwy, 661 Wall St., 1074 Henderson Hwy.
