Gumbs Hurricane Recovery for School

James and Gloria Gumbs, Music Academy Success® members since 2015, suffered severe damage to their school in St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands due to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  Not only was the school exterior and interior badly damaged, but they also lost equipment and instruments. They sustained water damage to 80% of their school.  As one of the few places on the island that still has running water and electricity, they are struggling to keep their school going and be a center for help in their community.  We are raising funds for them to help replace damaged equipment and repair damage to the school.  Our goal is $10,000, and MASS will match every dollar of the first $5,000!

Music Academy Success® (MASS®) is a music school coaching business based in Columbia, SC. As MASS® members, James and Gloria will be able to use these funds directly to repair school damage and replace school equipment.
