Dear Friends,

The school across the street from Charmaine Neville's
house in New Orleans has finally re-opened. They need
musical instruments. If you have or know someone who
has an unused band instrument in good repair, please
contact me at this email address.

Also, if you could forward this to your lists and
spread the word, I'd
appreciate it. You never can tell who played flute in
high school and still has one under the bed. We'll
pick them up or they can be dropped off at my office.
We are going to New Orleans in December and will take
whatever we gather then.

If an instrument is located in another area, NOLA
Relief may be able to help with shipping and the
instrument could be sent directly to Charmaine.
Donations of money would also be appreciated and then
we could send our pawnshop crew out to work their

The need, like the beat, goes on. If we were buried
under a mountain of instruments, we could place them
all over the Gulf Coast. NOLA Relief is still sending
money to New Orleans musicians through your generous
contributions. Thank you so much.

Marcia Ball
