Athens’ band Widespread Panic is spreading the love of music to children across the Clarke County School District through a $75,000 donation from Tunes for Tots, an organization devoted towards furthering music education, founded by the rock group in 2005.

The donation will be divided among elementary, middle, and high schools in the district to fund new equipment and instruments for students.

Tunes for Tots awarded a $25,000 donation to the school district for the 2021-2022 school year and has raised over $3 million towards children’s music education.
