Our Guitars for Vets Canada program is based on a simple concept, veterans (CAF/RCMP) who suffer with PTSD or other service related disabilities will be provided with a new or gently used guitar and matched up with a guitar instructor for 10 weeks of free lessons. Our mission is to get as many Guitars in the hands of wounded veterans as possible to start the healing process.

We NEED instructors ALL over Canada!

Where in Alberta can guitars be dropped off for donation to Vets in Alberta? Other than L&M stores.

I contacted Kate Bessete at VETS Canada with your question and she replied with the following:

"That is a bit tricky to answer directly... L&M is our only 'official' drop off point for AB, but if they want to get in touch with me, I can try and coordinate with a volunteer nearby (if possible) to pick it up?

You may want to also contact your closest L&M and ask if they would cover the shipping costs.

Good luck!

It's a toss up, Calgary or edmonton. A hundred plus miles away either way.
Well, L&M also has a Lethbridge location--but that's even further.

Hopefully they can find something for you.
