EHS Student Leaders Team with Community to Help Local Residents
Please Remember Project Remember
Project Remember, a service project led by Early High School students, is working to help CARE Nursing Inc. to initiate a music therapy program for their residents. We need donations of
new or used CD and/or music players
iTunes or Google Play gift cards
All Donations can be dropped off at Chick-fil-a in the Heartland Mall or at the Early Chamber of Commerce.
A group of student leaders from Early High School is seeking assistance from the community in helping some of our most precious residents. The following is information from their press release:
We should value all ages in our communities, from the very young to the very old. However, the oldest old in nursing homes and assisted living facilities often feel isolated and excluded.
Partnered with the Early Chamber of Commerce and Texas Midwest Community Network (TMCN) Leadership Program, Project Remember is a service project created by Early High School rising seniors, Danielle Contreras and Maggie Yantis. After being asked to identify and resolve a challenge in Brown County, the two have decided to implement music therapy to patients residing at Early’s Care Nursing Home and Rehab Facility for those who suffer with dementia and loneliness. Their mission being to build a bridge to the generations that came before them, Contreras and Yantis, along with a team of fellow Early High School students, will begin the process of identifying music that Care residents had/have a personal connection to in order to create personalized playlists for every resident.
The students plan to execute this project for years to come but need help from the community. Contreras and Yantis ask that the community donate to the cause by contributing used or new MP3 and Record players, iTunes and Google Play cards, or a donation that can be made out to Project Remember. Chick Fil A’s owner, Brent Gooch, has partnered with the students and will provide a drop off for donations at Early’s Heartland Mall. Every donation, big or small, will benefit a resident’s life with peace of mind and remembrance of the past.
