MPBN Instrument Donation Project

MPBN is seeking "previously loved" working musical instruments that may be lying about in an attic or garage and get them into the hands of Maine children who would love to play, but don’t have the resources to either rent or purchase an instrument of their own. There are needy students across the state who would LOVE a used instrument!

We have placed collection bins in the foyers of each of our lobbies in Portland, Lewiston and Bangor and hope that you can take the time to dig out that old flute or trombone and drop it off!

MPBN will be accepting instruments between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday from June 2nd to June 30th. Pianos and like-sized instruments cannot be accepted.


  • Bangor: 63 Texas Ave.
  • Lewiston: 1450 Lisbon St.
  • Portland: 323 Marginal Way

Requests for musical instruments should be made through your school's Music Department and should be sent to us at
