The Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce is working to get instruments to kids who need them.

The country band Wilson Fairchild is headlining for Good Times, Tastes & Traditions, the chamber's fall event that invites people to travel the world at Staunton's Frontier Culture Museum. For those who aren't familiar with Wilson Fairchild, they are the sons of Harold and Don Reid of Staunton's own Statler Brothers.

In lieu of paying the band, the chamber is making a donation of instruments to the blue grass band at the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind.

"Right now they're literally using instruments that the teacher has provided that he's had in his home, and anything that they can get their hands on. Right now there's a wish list of about a dozen items," said Melissa Martin, the chamber's director of community development.

The instruments VSDB is looking for are two mandolins, an upright bass, three or four acoustic guitars, a banjo or two, and a portable sound system.
