In the wake of the 2017 Hurricane Harvey, Luck’s Music started a YouCaring campaign to raise money for affected Orchestra programs in Texas. Melissa Luck, Music Library President at Luck’s, mentioned in a press release:

“We began hearing from many of our orchestra colleagues at school districts in Texas that Hurricane Harvey was much worse than expected and extensive damage had been done to homes, schools, and local businesses. This also included considerable damage to school music libraries; many of which have been tirelessly grown for decades.”

Teachers, students, schools, and parents across the country contributed to the cause, and funds donated were matched dollar for dollar by Luck’s. This included a $2,000 donation from our own MASTA chapter!

At the end of the campaign, Melissa Luck stated, “We are extremely proud of the compassion and support from teachers, students, parents and individuals from across the country. Students organized concert programs and fundraising campaigns to assist their orchestra colleagues in Texas. It’s amazing what we can do when the community stands together and supports one another.”

The $35,000 raised is currently being distributed to Orchestra programs in the Houston area.
