PROJECT: “A Piano’s Potential” for Deseret Industries

Application Deadline EXTENDED to Thursday, April 13th, no later than 8:00 am.

This is a beautiful project from Deseret Industries. It follows the life of a piano from one owner to the next, demonstrating how new life can be breathed into gently used items. It begins with an elderly woman who plays her beloved piano every day until she passes away. The piano is packed up to sit in a cold storage unit for a time until it is shipped to a D.I. store. There, one of the associates takes a special interest in cleaning it up and setting out for display. A DIY blogger sees it, buys it, and restores it for her own son to play. (True story!)

This project is on a tight budget, but it is so worthwhile. I hope you might take a moment to review our needs and apply or invite others to apply!
