Food for Strings

Food for Strings started in 2015 when we wanted a way to give back to our community and the organizations who do so much for others.  It has changed over time, but the core has remained the same - donate food and we'll restring your guitar or bass as a thank you. 

Since 2015, we have collected:

  • 683 lbs of human food
  • 721 lbs of pet food
  • $1,182.13

For November 2019, we are hosting a Food for Strings event from November 11 - 23rd.  We usually host the food drive for one week, but since we missed out on the opportunity in April, we're doing it for two weeks!  We are collecting donations of human food items, pet food items (cat/dog only), or cash donations.  Food items cannot be expired.

This year donations will be given to the following:

  • Eagle's Wings Food Pantry in Washington, NC
  • Food Bank of Central & Eastern Carolina in Greenville, NC
  • Pet Food Pantry of Eastern NC in Greenville, NC

Each participant will be entered into a drawing to win one of two $50 gift certificates! So if you don’t have an instrument needing strings, that’s okay! You can still participate and be entered into our gift certificate drawing while helping out the food banks.

For those wanting to bring in a stringed instrument for the restring – there is no limit on how many instruments you bring in to participate in the event. Below are the details:
We are very grateful to our partner, DR STRINGS, for providing the strings for this event. Per their requirements, the strings must be installed on the instrument prior to leaving our store as they want you to try them out (and we would love to hear what you think about them!)
