The annual GiveBIG campaign to assist non-profits continues through Wednesday May 6, 2020, and the Kent Youth Orchestra is hoping for help.

This M-Power Youth 501c(3) seeks your support to help disadvantaged youth find a positive path in their future through music.

“Our program is based on a program from Venezuela – EL SISTEMA – that has helped hundreds of thousands of youth from the less fortunate become skilled craftsmen; doctors; engineers and more,” said Jim Renton, President. “In this time of a health pandemic, the need to assist additional youth has become a major priority.
