A guitar signed by all of Deftones is now available for auction HERE. The auction benefits the It Takes A Community Foundation, an organization founded by Aaron Lewis of Staind and his wife Vanessa.
The It Takes A Community Foundation was launched with a focus on reviving rural communities throughout the greater New England area. The charity works with local leaders and community organizations that have firsthand knowledge of the needs of their communities. It strives to raise funds and support these community groups who strengthen, engage and enrich the communities they are in, sustain diminishing public services and provide assistance to communities in crisis.
For its initial launch, ITAC’s goal is to raise funds in support of the Community Education Center in Worthington, Massachusetts. Funds raised will help open the school’s doors and provide a seamless transition from a district run facility to a community school.
