Youth from Pueblo County 4-H “Pig Chasers” with their leaders Myllisa Bigler and Cochelle Evans visited Pueblo Cooperative Care Center to take a tour and make a donation of 20 backpacks filled with personal hygiene supplies for individuals who are homeless. This act of kindness was empowering for the youth and their questions clearly reflect the values that are being taught by Pueblo County 4H “Pig Chasers.” Mona Montoya, Director of Operations at Pueblo Cooperative Care Center stated “the 4-H youth had more relative and pertinent questions about our operations than any other group in recent history.” Ms. Montoya stated “as a group they asked more than 50 questions reflecting their concern for those people who are less fortunate, and it was heartwarming to see today’s youth care for others at this level of concern.” She added “they learned first-hand about our organization and how their efforts make an impactful difference in people’s lives.
The backpacks were donated to Pueblo County 4H “Pig Chasers”by Shandy Clinic whose motto is “We’re here to help.” Their efforts not only supports the Pueblo County 4H “Pig Chasers” but the greater community. Shandy Clinic is helping Pueblo Cooperative Care Center to bring people in need just a little closer to a better tomorrow. You make a difference and we thank you!
