With the slogan "Proudly Supporting the Children of this Community Since 1980" the Erath Backerís Club has worked the past three decades with one objective in mind, to help assist Erath schools and youth.

With a specific goal in place of raising funds, the organization meets monthly and works extensively each year by setting up a series of fundraisers throughout the year earmarked to help the Erath schools. Some examples of fundraising ventures this year included selling Erath Backerís shirts, EHS flags and hosting a jambalaya dinner. This spring they hosted their Annual Golf Tournament on April 16th and will end the year with their Backerís Club Crawfish Boil on April 30th.

The group works extensively with Erath High School raising funds for athletics and other programs. The group also hosts Erath Highís Annual Athletic Hall of Fame Induction each fall.

Recently, the club brought checks to Erath Middle and Dozier Elementary to assist with funding as well.
On April 13, 2011, the Erath Backerís Club President Chris Hebert and Treasurer Robert B. Vincent presented Dozier Elementary Principal Karla Toups and Assistant Principal Natalie Hebert with a $3000 check earmarked primarily toward technology needs, with a small portion being used toward the schoolís upcoming Teacher Appreciation Week activities. School leaders, the technology committee and faculty members have been on a quest the past two years to bring more technology resources into the classrooms. With the Backerís Club donation, the schoolís need at this time would be to begin upgrading several older classroom computers.

A few weeks prior to Dozierís donation, the Backerís Club offered a $3000 check to Erath Middle schoolís Principal Lynn Moss. Moss stated that the earmarked funds would help purchase new basketball goals for the playground, paper to help teachers and if money is still available, possibly for curtains in the gym.

The current 2010-11 Backerís Club Officers are President Chris Hebert; Vice President John Toups; Treasurer Robert Vincent; Parliamentarian Shane Broussard, Public Relations; Jennie Mendoza; and Co-Secretaries Kesha Touchet and Melissa Rosa.
