Edina High School will host a musical instrument drive to provide instruments to kids who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford them.

The drive, organized by sophomore Daniel Sandberg along with Hope for the City and Rotary International, will provide a third of collected instruments to students locally. The rest of the instruments will be distributed to schools ­in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

To donate, drop off instruments before March 22 at Edina High School or at Hope for the City.

On March 23, Sandberg and a group of volunteers will spend the day at the Hope for the City warehouse, 7003 Oxford St. in St. Louis Park, sorting, cleaning and packing the instruments for shipment. Volunteer shifts are available from 10:30-noon or from 12:30-2 p.m.

Volunteers also can get guided tours of the “Pathways of Hope,” a multisensory exhibit that illustrates specific challenges of poverty in six countries.

The exhibit was built by ImpactLives, in partnership with Hope for the City, Hope International and Opportunity International.
