KEYS 2020 Annual Report
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things on the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” - Mr. Rogers
Although these are very difficult, and sometimes scary times right now, we have been surrounded by so many amazing helpers. Helpers who sing their heart out to bring joy and smiles to our KEYS kids. Helpers who use music therapy to help calm an anxious and scared child facing surgery. Helpers who tune-in to our concerts to send messages of love and support to a pediatric cancer warrior feeling isolated and alone. Helpers who make smiles possible by being a grant partner, sponsor, donor or volunteer.
In our 2020 Annual Report, we share the many ways the KEYS Program has been able to continue delivering music, hope and smiles to our KEYS kids and their families throughout the pandemic, thanks to our wonderful helpers... and smile creators ...like you!
