BENEFITING: CHANGE FOR KIDS INC
"This is important to me because I know that there are some schools that are less fortunate and the arts program is even more important than academic because the arts is everything around you. It’s not just painting and playing music, but you can find it on the street, in a factory, at a restaurant. Violin is meaningful to me because it’s a way to express myself and a way to show my feelings. My favorite part is that it expresses creativity because you can play what others compose and what you compose yourself." Alexandra Grunfeld
On May 13th Alexandra will perform a violin concert. All money raised will go directly to P.S.142 students in the 2017-18 school year via Change For Kids. It will help bridge funding gaps in order to provide music classes and instruments to students who otherwise would not receive such programming.
Change for Kids is a non-profit organization that helps inner city children and schools get the funding they need to put kids on the right track for success. They currently are partnered with ten schools in Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
