North Carolina native Luke Combs dug deep into his pockets today to help his compatriots in Texas.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation in southeast Texas, Luke announced on Twitter that he is donating $10,000 to Samaritans Purse, a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization that “provides spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.”
While the ill-timed coincidence is definitely not a laughing matter due to Harvey’s catastrophic damage, Luke rose to prominence earlier this year as his debut single, “Hurricane,” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. His new single, “When It Rains It Pours,” is currently Top 20 on the charts.
Check out Luke’s Twitter post below.
I’m donating $10k to @SamaritansPurse to help with the recovery and rebuilding efforts in Texas.
