"Our youth deserve the gift of music and all the benefits it bestows," says the CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of the San Gorgonio Pass in California.
Thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Panda Cares Foundation, the club was able to purchase new keyboards, headphones, ukuleles, acoustic guitars, electric guitars and amps, and an electric drum set, the Press-Enterprise reports.
The San Gorgonio Pass club is one of just 10 in the country to receive the grant.
"We serve youth from very diverse backgrounds," says the club's CEO.
"By providing the Youth for Unity program, we help them develop an appreciation of DEI that helps them see others for who they are, as unique individuals, each of whom contributes to the rich tapestry of our society."

One of the most significant challenges to social entrepreneurship and innovation is ensuring a diversity of approaches and participants in the movement. To truly deliver meaningful social change the leaders of the effort must share perspectives of the challenges faced by communities across the U.S. that can most appropriately come from members of those communities. Ashoka, through its All America initiative seeks to increase the diversity of social entrepreneurship practitioners.
