PINE RIDGE – On October 10, Jeffrey Herald, director of BCFS’s program for Developmentally Delayed and Intellectually Disabled (DDID) children at our Dessie Scott Campus, attended a trail ride and fundraiser by The Trail Keepers Foundation to benefit Dessie Scott Children’s Home.
The Trail Keepers Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create and preserve recreational trails on public and private land. The foundation uses environmentally responsible trail planning, construction, management, and user education to allow trails to be enjoyed by a wide range of users with minimal impact to the environment.
At the event, Herald brought greetings from the children at Buckhorn Children & Family Services and made a presentation informing the audience about BCFS’s programs and services for troubled, abused, and neglected children, as well as for those with severe disabilities.
After Herald shared Buckhorn’s mission with the group, Trail Keepers’s president Gary Rogers presented him with a cash donation of over $600 and many nice gifts for the kids at Dessie Scott.
Herald said the cash donation will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for the kids in BCFS’s care.
