Letter: Community shines on
There’s an old African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” that holds great meaning to how Pueblo West can support our community children.
On behalf of the You Can Shine Project, I would like to let them know how deeply grateful I am to see our community participate in our open house on Friday, Nov. 22, despite the change in weather, it was a huge success.
Because of your abundant donations and support, you are providing not only a chance for a child to Shine again, but a voice to advocate for change regarding our foster care system.
I would like to recognize not only my amazing surrounding neighbors, but our local businesses: Kristen White of the Pueblo West View, Sophia Casoria of Headlines West Salon, Terry Zupan and Staff of Legacy Bank, Daniel and Brenda Lines of Blue River Home Improvements, Jack Snell of San Isabel Electric, Natasha Padilla of Pueblo County DSS, Barbara and Mike Gangel of Prudential Real Estate, Canon City.
We will be asking for participation in our upcoming donation distribution and will continue to take donations for a delivery date of Christmas Eve.
I would like to give our community another look at what is possible here in Pueblo County, not only are you making a difference in a child’s life but all of our lives here in Pueblo County.
So I close with this: We are all the village and these are all our children!
Let’s continue to give them voices so they too can Shine Again!
