HURRICANE RELIEF

The devastation left behind by hurricane Harvey has been felt by thousands of people along the Texas Gulf Coast.  It is expected that it will take months and perhaps years for families and communities to return back to normality.  One of the many schools directly affected by Harvey was Woodsboro High School in Woodsboro, TX.  The water levels were high enough to cause extensive damage to the school; in particular their band hall. Most, if not all of their instruments were damaged by the flood waters.   

The damage is so extensive that it is likely their instruments may not be salvaged.  Part of the Taft Raider Band's philosophy is that "Each member is important" and we want to extend that philosophy and make the members of the Eagle Band know that they too are important to us and that we want to help.  We want to invite you to be part of our efforts to come together as a band family and help the Eagle Band during their time of hardship.  The Taft Raider 
Band wants to extend a helping hand to the Eagle Band by collecting monetary donations and supplies such as cork grease, reeds, cleaning kits, and other band-related items. Anything, no matter how small, helps. 

According to Bono, "Music can change the world because it can change people." We want to help the Woodsboro Eagle Band continue playing their music so that they can continue changing the world.  If you are interesting in making a monetary donation, please follow the instructions below.
