The East Coast and many of its surrounding communities were unexpectedly struck by a natural disaster on Sunday, October 29, 2012. Many in these music communities experienced significant loss — homes, cars, equipment, and rehearsal space — destroyed or significantly damaged. MusiCares understands the effects of this disaster in a unique way. Since our inception in 1989, it has been our mission to assist music industry people facing unexpected crises. MusiCares is poised and ready to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy get through this crisis.
MusiCares has established the MusiCares Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund to assist music people affected by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. MusiCares' initial assistance will provide funds for food and clothing, shelter, utilities, medical expenses, gasoline and transportation, cleanup efforts, relocation costs, instrument and recording equipment replacement, and other critical supplies. To apply for assistance, please contact one of two toll free help lines at 1.877.303.6962 or 1.877.626.2748.
