E-40 Donates $12,000 to Alma Mater

According to Vallejo’s Herald-Times, 40 stepped up to the plate after learning the school was in desperate need of new equipment after vandals broke into the band room and destroyed some of the already decrepit instruments. “We’ve been waiting for this forever. Everything that we do has to go through fundraisers,” said drumline instructor Tina Jamias. “We always struggle every year.” On Wednesday (April 11), 40 presented a check to the students and school administrators, and was treated to a performance by the band. “Our equipment was run down. I can’t imagine how they are getting through with it now,” said 40. “I wanted to do something for my school. And I want people to know it’s cool to be in band. It’s cool to play instruments.”
