When Trosclair saw a post on social media calling for volunteers to make and deliver meals to local nurses, he reached out immediately. Organized by Chris Nelson, owner of Roosters Men’s Grooming Center in Baton Rouge, the effort brought volunteers together to lend a helping hand for nurses at Woman’s Hospital facing COVID-19 head on.
“With everything going on, we really wanted to give back to these workers and show them some love and appreciation,” Nelson says.
Nelson, a jambalaya cookoff champion, prepared his famous recipe while others packaged the meals and loaded trays into trailers. Armed with over 250 meals, Trosclair and the other volunteers delivered the meals to groups of thankful, appreciative nurses.
“These nurses are under tremendous pressure and risk their lives on the front line against this pandemic. They are our heroes right now, and we need to support them,” Trosclair says.
With a successful effort behind him, Trosclair is looking forward to new ways of helping out and making an impact while he can.
