Martina McBride and Her Fans Are Helping Hurricane Victims
Like many Americans, Martina McBride saw the devastation Hurricane Harvey and Irma brought upon Texas and Florida natives and wanted to help. So she teamed up with her global charity initiative, Team Music Is Love, and non-profit One Gen Away, which aims to provide emergency food service to those in need.
The partnership will bring mobile food pantries to Florida and Texas to help families in need of meals. In a video posted to YouTube, McBride shares how fans can help directly. "We'll be setting up mobile food pantries to help families recovering from disaster by providing them easy access to healthy food and basic necessities," she explains.

Those interested in assisting can visit teammusicislove.com to make online donations to help stock the food trucks. The more money the organizations receive, the more trucks they'll be able to send.
The campaign was originally launched to help provide assistance in Texas after Hurricane Harvey, but after Hurricane Irma wrecked Florida, Team Music Is Love's efforts have expanded to send mobile food pantries to more devastated communities.
According to a press release, the pop-up mobile food pantries will provide water, ready-to-eat food and boxed meals, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. For more information, visit McBride's global charity initiative website.
McBride is far from the first country artist to lend a helping hand after the hurricanes hit. Kenny Chesney and Chris Young are also involved in getting people back on their feet after the record-breaking storms.
