This comprehensive music program thrives on the support of families, friends, and community members. Our performing artists deeply appreciate seeing and hearing cheers and encouragement from the stands. Additionally, our program can use every available offer of assistance for things such as:
  • Regular attendance at our DSR parent meetings to stay informed of upcoming events and program needs
  • Preparing and serving pre-performance meals to feed the Regiment
  • Transportation of students and equipment to competitions
  • Basic sewing skills to hem, alter and repair performance uniforms, flags and more
  • Financial support to help the Regiment purchase new uniforms, a trailer to transport band equipment, and other needs as our program continues to grow
All help is greatly appreciated and will be counted toward your Damien, St. Lucy's or Pomona Catholic volunteer hours.
