Using Music to Help a Community Rebuild

When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas late 2017, Scarborough Elementary School was among its victims. The school lost everything as a result – not only their physical building, but all musical instruments and learning materials.

When the Hard Rock Heals Foundation began raise funds for hurricane relief efforts via Hard Rock Cafes nationwide, it was important that music be a core element of provided aid. Together with VH1 Save the Music Foundation, Hard Rock Heals Foundation granted Scarborough Elementary School $25,000 – enough to rebuild the school’s music program and solidify its position as a main component of the curriculum for the next decade. The funds replaced all instruments lost during the hurricane and even added new ones!
