The Spartan Legion needs your help!  Last week, the trailer which the Spartan Legion used to transport it's equipment, props and golf cart to parades and competitions was stolen from the Schurr High School parking lot! 


The Schurr High School Spartan Legion is an award winning music program in the City of Montebello, California and consists of 200+ Schurr High School students in the Marching Band, Color Guard, Drill Team and Orchestra.  They represent Schurr High School, the City of Montebello and the surrounding communities by performing at competitions and community service events.

Although it is difficult to understand why anyone would steal from good kids, it is more difficult to tell them they can not compete because we can not get their equipment and props to the competition.  As we are in the midst of competition season, and Winter Guard around the corner, the need to replace the trailer is vital.  This is why we need your help.  Funds raised by this campaign will go towards the replacement of the trailer. 

Donations for the new trailer can also be made to the Schurr High Music Boosters, which is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization accepting tax-deductible charitable donations.  Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 3352 Montebello, CA 90640.

The Schurr Spartan Legion and the Schurr High School Music Boosters appreciates your donation.

Thank you everyone that's following this episode with me and my program. The amount of love and support in this past week has been nothing short of amazing. We met our www.gofundme.com/SpartanLegion
goal in two days!

To all those that have reached out to me asking how they can help or feel like they missed out on how to contribute. You still can. We still have instruments to purchase, trips to plan, costs (seen and unseen), repairs to make, and replacements of equipment too far gone. I'm leaving the link up if it is easier for you this way. You can always contribute in ways you see fit. Straight donations to the Band via the school, or to the boosters. We are blessed to have a company donate a flatbed trailer.

We are using the money that's been donated for an enclosed trailer to fit our particular needs.

The kids and parents and I have all gone through the lows and highs of this week, all while trying to create a decent product on the street and on the field. From late nights at football games, to TV interviews, to driving out to Rialto Sunday morning after coming home after midnight on Saturday night, our program is #LegionStrong.

Thank you!
Antonio Castro
Spartan Legion Band Director
