Shirt sales will help teachers replace items damaged during storm



It all started when Lawyer Loyd J Bourgeois’s office donated St. Charles Strong t-shirts to the Hahnville High Robotics team to shoot from their shirt cannon for the HHS / DHS football game.

Lindy Bourgeois, the company’s director of marketing and community outreach, designed the shirt. It features the iconic Hale Boggs Bridge that connects the two sides of St. Charles Parish.

“Inside the bridge are the names of the towns and neighborhoods that make up our great community,” Lindy said. “For a few years now, we’ve been donating shirts to the Cannon T-shirt. We normally gave out Hahnville themed shirts, but I got the idea with the big Hahnville vs. Destrehan game and coming back from that storm that I wanted to do something more community themed.

Lindy said the shirts were an immediate hit.

“We received an overwhelming response asking us to sell the shirts… everyone was asking if they could buy one,” she said. “I was like, ‘Maybe there’s something I can do with this to help.'”

Loyd is a member of the board of directors of United Way of St. Charles, and Lindy said a dedicated fund has been set up for the company by UWSC, where 100% of the proceeds from the sale of shirts and all Donations from commercial sponsors will go to St. Charles. Founding of Parish Public Schools to help teachers who lost classroom materials in the storm.

Commercial sponsors, who have each pledged money per shirt sale, include ABC Title of Boutte, Custom Tile Pool & Patio, Kelli’s Kreative Dance, Today’s Car Care, and Chauvin Custom Homes.

“I just know that so many teachers are investing so much of their own money in their classrooms,” Lindy said. “There are so many personal items for these teachers in their rooms, then there are teachers who may have lost their homes and we just didn’t want them to have to shell out any more. I know a lot of school supplies are donated by PTOs as well and they don’t have the capacity to replace them all at once. As a law firm, we have done a lot of things over the past few years to support our school and our teachers. “

The first round of shirt sales will end on October 21, but Lindy has said with more interest that another round may open. You can find more information on shirt sales at www.louisianadisabilitylaw.com/blog/st-charles-strong.cfm.
