Here at Scripps Radio Knoxville, our community is our family. So we're taking time every month on all 4 Scripps Radio Knoxville stations to spotlight local charitable causes that serve our community's needs with our 'Giving Light Initiative'. Each chosen non-profit cause receives $10,000 worth of promotional and commercial support to highlight their charity and the selfless work they do to help our friends and neighbors in East Tennessee.
This month's charity is The Joy of Music School
For 20 years now, Knoxville’s Joy of Music School has provided quality music education programs for at risk children, and the financially disadvantaged, as well as free instruments and music lessons to children who could not otherwise afford them. Students qualify based on need, using the same benchmarks as the Federal free/reduced lunch program. The Joy of Music School teaches over 200 kids weekly with free lessons, and reaches up to 500 more through the Boys and Girls clubs and Emerald Youth Foundation after-school sites.
If this is something you're interested in for your charity. Let us know!
