RePlay Murphy Instrument & RePaint Art Supplies Drives

Kathy Wright, Katherine MacRae, Chris Dunn, Kate Curtin & Ray Owen show off some of the 33 instruments collected last year.

Do you have some paints and brushes in a corner collecting dust? Is there a violin tucked away in a closet that your child no longer plays? If so, why not donate these items to the RePlay Murphy Instrument Drive or the RePaint Arts Supplies Drive?

To donate musical instruments, the Arts Council of Moore County and Kiwanis Club of the Sandhills offers the RePlay Murphy Instrument Drive, which was started by the late Bob Murphy, a Kiwanian and local musician who played regularly at the Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst. The goal for RePlay is to collect new and used musical instruments and give them to Moore County school band and orchestra students free of charge.

To donate arts supplies, the Arts Council offers the RePaint Art Supplies Drive, which was created by Kate Curtin, Arts Council’s youth program director. The goal of RePaint is to collect art supplies and put them in Moore County Schools’ art classrooms. All types of supplies are welcome, including paints, any kind of paper, brushes, canvases, markers, pencils, and sketch books.

The Arts Council will collect donations starting on Saturday, August 3, 2019 from 9 a.m. to noon. On this date, we can accept donations in three ways:

  • WE WILL PICK UP your donations on August 3 (9a-noon), if you call the Arts Council at 910-692-2787 by August 2 with your address and type and size of items you wish to donate
  • DROP OFF donations at the Arts Council’s offices (Campbell House, 482 E. Connecticut Avenue, Southern Pines)
  • GIVE MONEY to help defray the costs of instrument repairs or art supply purchases. Make checks payable to ACMC/RePlay or RePaint and mail to the Arts Council at P.O. Box 405, Southern Pines, NC 28388, or drop off at Campbell House any weekday (9a-5p)

If you cannot make a donation on August 3, the Arts Council will accept donations throughout the year. In addition to a tax deduction, you will be instrumental in the education of a Moore County child.
