COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Guitars 4 Vets is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to providing relief to struggling veterans through the healing power of music and community.

As part of the United for Veterans initiative, WIS has partnered with the local branch of Guitars for Vets to collect new or gently-used guitars to help support this mission.

“The guitar, lessons and camaraderie that Guitars for Vets (G4V) provides to PTSD afflicted Veterans free of charge is in the least life changing and in the most lifesaving.  It takes a community to support those recovering from the challenges of PTSD.  The guitar is a catalyst for positive collaboration and leads participants toward social interaction and improved self-care. Music can take us to wonderful places that words alone cannot,” said Guitars for Vets Co-Founder, Patrick Nettesheim.

If you’d like to donate a guitar to support local veterans through G4V, donations can be made until March 1st at the following locations:

Bath Fitter – 401 Huger Street

Palmetto State Armory - 3760 Fernandina Rd.

SC Department of Veterans’ Affairs – 1800 St. Julian Place Suite 305

If you would prefer to make a cash donation, checks can be made payable to Guitars 4 Vets and mailed to 1111 Bull Street, Columbia, SC to the attention of United for Veterans. All donations will be used to support local efforts in the Midlands.
