Rio Grande Valley, TX (News Center 23) — "Foster here in Texas", an agency that places children with foster families in the Valley, received a much needed donation this morning.
The Valley Automotive Dealers Association handed over a five thousand dollar check to the agency to help with the purchase of a new infant and toddler car seats.
"It's also a big help to our foster families because when you do take infants into your home, you know you need to have a crib and you need to have all kinds of equipment including a car seat and so we are really grateful for the donation because it gives us the opportunity to provide that piece of equipment to the foster parents."
September marks national child passenger safety month.
