FamilyCare Music Education Initiative

June 30, 2016

FamilyCare Health LogoOver the past two school years, fifty schools, with 23,500 young students, in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties were selected based on need to participate in the FamilyCare Music Education Initiative in partnership with Schoolhouse Supplies. These schools received a generous selection of musical instruments to further their students’ music education. Each school selected the instruments that would best serve their school.

“This may seem like an unusual gift for a health care company, but we know that music education and participation in music aids in the healthy development of both the intellectual and emotional minds of children that carries on into their adult lives,” says FamilyCare President & CEO Jeff Heatherington. “This is preventative medicine at a very fundamental level.”
