With the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s no secret that funds have been limited for nearly all, including schools. Because of this, The Helper Project wished to help the students at Sally Mauro Elementary in their musical arts department. They wrote a grant request to the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Foundation and were awarded funding for the project.
Shalee Johansen of the Helper Project began working with others that could assist, such as Mark Dickey of Lee’s Music in Price, to provide for the local children. Through this venture, students at Sally Mauro were given recorders for their recorder program. They were also purchased for students to take home for practice or Zoom classes.
“It was really successful,” shared Johansen.
