Wright’s Foundation Assists Mississippi Schools

Chely Wright has donated $26,000 worth of musical instruments to three Gulf Coast schools in Mississippi through her nonprofit Reading, Writing and Rhythm Foundation. Wright was in Mississippi this week to make the donations to Gulfport High School, Pass Christian Elementary and Bay High School, whose instruments were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Since its inception in 1999, the foundation has raised $1 million to assist music programs in public schools.
