Mentos Rocks donated $10,000 worth of funding, new uniforms and instruments to the music program at Bancroft. In addition, Andy Grammer joined the students for a heartfelt performance of two of his hit songs “Keep Your Head Up,” and “Fine By Me.” The students were ecstatic to meet Andy and perform with him. It was also amazing to see how appreciative they were of Mentos $10,000 donation to their music program.
Mentos Rocks is a music program that aligns with artists to restore music education at schools around the country that have had to cut back on the music curriculum due to unfortunate budget cuts. “We are grateful to the individuals at Mentos Rocks, not only for their immense generosity, but their deep appreciation for the students and music education as a whole,” said Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board Member Marguerite Poindexter LaMotte, who represents Bancroft Middle School.
