Words of Thanks from Roberts Middle School

After Hurricane Harvey, Fred Roberts Middle School in Pasadena ISD was one of the first schools that we heard from in need of help. Many of the students’ families lost their homes, cars and most of their possessions — including their instruments. Music teacher, Mrs. Debbie McKelvey, was determined to keep her students playing. She knew that music was the key to healing from the loss and a way to cope with the “new normal” after the storm. Her students have been busy writing thank you notes to Music Doing Good with Instruments. Their words are truly music to our ears.

Writes Sophia Alonso, “…With your generous donation, I now have my very own violin! I started crying when Ms. McKelvey told me. I really love it! Thank you again for your donation.”
Jazmin Savannah Garcia writes in her post script, “PS. I’m in love with my violin!”

Music Doing Good with Instruments in so touched by these words of thanks. Roberts Middle School has already treated us to a concert by their wonderful orchestra!
