Young man hopes to hit the right notes with instrument collection

SOUTH BRUNSWICK — Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout will be music to one young man’s ears.

Dermot Berg, a member of Boy Scout Troop 90 in the Kendall Park section of South Brunswick, is starting an instrument drive for his Eagle project.

According to his project flier, the gift of music “is a wonderful experience” so he hopes to provide that gift to others.

“Music is a passion of mine. I was lucky enough to be able to start playing the saxophone when I was 7 years old, and I now play both guitar and drums. For my project, I am collecting music instruments for Trenton High School in order to give the gift of music to kids who don’t have the opportunity,” he said.

Dermot is collecting saxophones, clarinets, trumpets, trombones, flutes, tubas and sousaphones. To make a contribution, email musicfortrentonhighschool@gmail.com or visit his Facebook page.

To donate money to clean and service the donated instruments, or to help with the project, visit youcaring.com.
