Kids Clothing Drive for Penelope House

kids clothing drive

Andy’s Music is sponsoring a kids clothing drive for Penelope House beginning Oct. 12. They are in need of all types of kids clothes, including socks and baby wipes.

Bring us gently used kids clothes – starting now – and we’ll restring your 6-string guitar with new D’Addario strings.

Penelope House is a non-profit organization established in 1979 by the Daughters of Penelope to help victims of domestic violence regain social and economic independence. The Family Violence Center is the only shelter for battered women and children in Mobile, Alabama, although services currently span across Mobile and Washington counties in Alabama.

Services offered by Penelope House include advocacy, community education, counseling, on-site medical care, schools prevention education, transitional living, and victims’ support groups.

In addition to its services, a 24-hour crisis line (251) 342-8994 was established by Penelope House to provide prompt counseling, information and referral services to individuals in abusive and/or violent situations.

Restring Benefit For St. Mary’s Home

St. Mary's Home

Mark your calendars and put aside your donations for the “Restring Thing” benefit for St. Mary’s Home on Saturday, September 29, at Andy’s Music.

Bring us food, usable clothing and school supplies for St. Mary’s Home, and you will receive for your charitable contribution, a FREE restring of your guitar – electric or acoustic – with D’Addario guitar strings. The first 25 people will also receive a pack of 10 Duralin picks from Planet Waves.

Founded in 1838, St. Mary’s Home serves as the first and oldest residential treatment facility for children in Alabama.  Founded as an orphanage, St. Mary’s Home continues to care for children who have been abused, abandoned or neglected by their families.

St. Mary’s Home has offered shelter and nurturing care to children who had and still have nowhere else to turn for help.  Like the original 3 orphans who moved into St. Mary’s Home on December 26, 1838, these children continue to rely on the kindness of others, not only to meet their daily needs but to provide them with the loving guidance to heal and to grow into productive members of our community.

With your help, St. Mary’s Home can provide a miracle in the form of a safe place for children to live that is free from abuse.

The Penelope House “Strings for Beans” Benefit, sponsored by Andy’s Music and D’Addario Strings, had a good turnout this past Saturday, October 16.

For the price of a few canned goods, Andy’s customers had their guitars restrung with D’Addario strings. A large table full of canned goods, pasta, and paper products were donated. Even a few local celebrities made an appearance to give their support to a very good cause.
