Here’s an update on what we’ve been doing the past few months:
This Spring, our volunteers served at 14 funerals across Colorado, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.
In March, 7 new volunteers were trained in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In April, we performed at special events in Oklahoma and Wisconsin including an Ex-POW Recognition Ceremony, the National Guard Military Ball, and two different Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Events.
In April, we launched our Salute to Service Project. Funding for this project was provided on behalf of NobleHour through the generosity of an anonymous donor within the GiveWell Community Foundation. Over Memorial Day weekend, Volunteers from from Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin participated in 15 different Memorial Day Ceremonies as a part of our Salute to Service Project.
Thanks to news media coverage from Girl Scouts, NewsOK, The Edmond Sun, ABC World News Tonight with David Muir, and A Mighty Girl, we’ve recruited volunteers in 9 new states and have received generous donations from private donors. These donations will help us continue our mission of training, supporting, and recognizing high school trumpet players who use their musical gifts to honor our Nation’s heroes.
Please spread the word about us to funeral directors and high school band directors in your communities. If you want to donate, click the donate button on our website website at trumpetandtaps.org.
