The PRS Play It Forward program was created by Paul Reed Smith himself. The charitable program calls for donating an instrument to an individual or charitable group that may not have access to it otherwise.
“On behalf of Premier Guitar, we are certainly honored to participate in Paul’s ‘Play It Forward’ program,” lauds Salter. “I personally endorse the program, and am a firm believer in its concept. I was humbled to present the instrument to the Rabiner Treatment Center, for I believe this donation is a prime example of the intent of the program and Paul’s vision of gracious humanity. The center was very grateful, and the instrument will be a cherished addition to the school’s music department for many years to come.”
The Rabiner Treatment Center is located just west of Fort Dodge, Iowa, and is a home for troubled youths and teens. It serves children who deal with a wide range of difficulties, including neglect, minor learning disabilities and drug addiction. In order to establish a stronger curriculum, the school has started a new music department, headed by Dennis Simon. The guitar will help the school’s music department get up and running.
