Collins Band Raising Money For A New Tuba:


How do you fix a Tuba ? With a Tuba Glue of course !

On a serious note, our program is growing rapidly and we do not have enough instruments to equip our students. We need a new concert tuba, which is much needed. Our goal is to raise $6000.00 by May 25, 2016.

Going green will help us reach that goal. So what can you do to support ? Used printer ink and toner cartridges. Yes, you read that correctly. Don't throw them away, donate them to the Collins Band. We will get them recycled which is good for the environment, good for you, and helps fund our way to our new Tuba.

Have an old cell phone that you are willing to donate ?

Ready to upgrade your cell phone, tablet, smartwatch, or fitness tracker? FundingFactory’s sister program MaxBack, pays you cash for your gently used devices. Plus, if you select us as your Cause during MaxBack’s registration process, we’ll score a 10% commission donated by MaxBack! It’s a win-win!

For more information please check out our Funding Factory Cause below :


Please share this with family, friends, and co-workers. Do you know someone with a business ? Let them know that we can help dispose of their toner and ink cartridges as well. We sincerely appreciate your assistance and kindness.
