More than a month after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, communities are still without power and cleaning up the damage. 

A couple Tucsonans, including violinist José Leonardi Moore, are stepping up to host a benefit concert Monday night to help raise donations for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. 

The money collected will go to Unidos por Puerto Rico.

Moore says there will be chamber music, poetry, and traditional Puerto Rican music and treats.

"We are here to help each other," said Moore. "It doesn't matter if you are from Puerto Rico, Mexico, the United States... everybody in need we are going to help."

The Benefit Concert for Puerto Rico will begin at 7 p.m. at  St. Philip's in the Hills Episcopal Church and admission is free.
