ABOUT National Pawn:
National Pawn has a longstanding tradition of supporting youth music programs in every county that is home to one of its stores, with the 2019-2020 school year marking its ninth annual donation. Since 2010, the company has donated over 4,300 instruments and $76,000 in cash to 25 public performing arts programs in Alamance, Cumberland, Durham, Forsyth, Guilford, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, and Wake counties.
“When we first began donating instruments to schools nine years ago, we had no idea just how great the needs in North Carolina schools would be,” stated Bob Moulton, founder of National Pawn. “Every year, we are touched by stories from teachers, parents, and students themselves about how these instruments inspired a love of learning and sense of community with fellow classmates. It’s an honor to provide Noble Middle School students with these resources, and we look forward to continuing to support these programs for years to come. ”
