Finding homes for older uprights

Hi Steven,  I have an upright piano (Senoma brand I think)  that needs the outside casing repaired.  The legs were broken at one time duing a move, and the outside wood needs to be refinished or restored.  It belonged to my roommate and she passed away last year.  Her children do not want the piano.  I hate to see it trashed, but don’t know what else to do with it.  Most of the donation organizations such as Goodwill, will not pick up extra large heavy items like this.  So I feel stuck. I know my roommate was hoping one of her grandchildren would want to play someday, but so far, they are not interested.  However, I think if the piano were repaired again, they might change their minds.  Do you have any suggestions or know of an organization that would be willing to take the piano:?

Thanks so much for your help.

Hi Andrea,

I understand. The older uprights are sometimes hard to dispose of.  Other than maybe a small church or school, I just don’t know of any organizations locally that would be interested in an older upright.

Sorry that I can’t be of more assistance.

Sincerely,

Steven Malicki

Thank you Steven for your response.  I have posted the piano on a piano adoption website, hoping for someone to notice this one and take it to good use.

Happy Holidays.

Andrea
