Red Bird Employees have a long history of supporting Non-Profit institutions and giving back to their community. In 2015 a local Non-Profit had closed due to lack of funding. The Red Bird Employees got together and devised a plan to save it. “Maestro” Bruno’s training as a Funding Raising Executive enabled him and his team to save the entityand to secure the necessary funding to upgrade the facility. The Red Bird/Concert Pianos Team has worked hard along with the employees of Thrift Angels and the Volunteers to continue their good work in the Bowie Texas Community.
