An Extraordinary Opportunity

LiftingupOne of the things that is very special about being part of the Carrollton Trojan Band Program is the sense of community and family that binds our students, alumni and parents. We work hard, we laugh hard and when given the opportunity we come together in force to support our program and its members when it is most needed. Now such an opportunity is before us.

As CHS Assistant Band Director, Josh Robichaux, and his family prepare for their infant son’s upcoming surgery and lengthy recovery, we want to come together in an effort to lift up this young family. The Robichauxs are expecting to be at the hospital with their son Everett for at least a week after his surgery, so what we would like to do is provide them with some gift cards that they can use for food etc., while they are away from their home. Then when they return home, we would like to further support them by taking in home cooked meals so that they can continue to focus all of their time and attention on their son’s recovery.

So for now, we are asking that anyone who is able and willing, please provide a financial donation on behalf the Robichauxs. If each member of our extensive band family just gave a couple of dollars, what a remarkable message of love, compassion, and encouragement it would be to Josh, Lindsay and Everett. Mrs. Dothard will be collecting these donations through the end of this week, until Friday 2/13/15, so please take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity to make a difference.

Then, once we have a better idea of when the family will be returning home, we will post a menu and sign-up sheet for those of you who would be willing to prepare a meal or part of a meal for the Robichauxs. We did something very similar to this during band camp and it was a great success, so we are hoping that all of our amazing home cooks will once again rise to the occasion. So if you are interested, please be watching for that sign-up sheet to be release.

Finally, we realize that each of use are given different abilities, talents and resources and not everyone will be able to give of their finances or offer to cook, but what everyone can do is to take just a few moments out of each day during this time and lift this family up in your thoughts and prayers. It is during these moments, these opportunists that we all can become stronger.
