The American Music Preservation Society in cooperation with Boost Mobile and R.A.R.E. are proud to announce our first annual Legacy Leaders Grant Program. Collectively we have identified a need for support and resources for many children living right here in our city. A number of families are struggling to keep the necessities taken care of from month to month. We aim to lighten that load while helping turn some of those deep concerns into after thoughts.
