Used Girls Concert Attire Needed!

You may be aware that JAMS music has an active “band-me-down” program, where people can donate outgrown concert attire and anyone can take what they need.

While we have lots of shoes and clothing available for boys, we have very little for girls. If you have any outgrown black shirts, skirts, pants, or shoes for girls (especially age 14 and up), that meet the concert attire guidelines, please drop them off in the back of the band room (past the practice rooms) at any time.

The guidelines are as follows:

• Black dress shirt/blouse with 3/4 sleeves or longer.
• Black dress shoes (No sandals or open toes. A moderate (2″) heel is OK, but must also be black. No platforms.)
• Black dress pants.
• Black dress skirt (skirts MUST cover knees completely when seated)

Feel free to contact me at with any questions.
