We have an amazing young man who decided to help out the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program by donating go bags. Please see the story.
Today, Toby Robinson came to Alamosa County Department of Human Services to accomplish his Eagle Scout Project. His project was to help out the community in the way he saw fit. He decided to choose the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program as his project in the community to help. He decided to donate 100 backpacks that were filled with comfort objects (stuffed animals and blankets), hygiene sets, activity sets (coloring book, crayons and toy) and a water bottle. Toby gathered all the backpacks and the items thanks to donations from local businesses and community members. He noted he wanted to do this project because he knows how it feels to be in the system and not have belongings of his own. It was amazing to see a youth who has gone through the system decide to give back to the system. The Directors of the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program and the Foster Care Coordinators were deeply touched by his amazing project, it gave those who have been in this line a work quite the feeling to see the youth we help give back to the system. A heartfelt thanks to Toby Robinson for all his hard work and dedication to the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program.
