2017 Community Advocate Award

Dustin Phillips, 4-H Sponsor at Carencro Heights

Foster Friends would like to recognize Dustin Phillips for his years of dedication in helping the foster children in Acadiana.

Dustin works at Carencro Heights Elementary School and is the Sponsor of the 4-H club. He is incredible with students and inspires them to be selfless and to consider others.

Through his leadership, in 2015, the 4-H club collected dozens of gifts for the foster children in our community. We were amazed at the generosity of all who contributed.

In 2016, Dustin led another Toy Drive which resulted in our largest donation ever! The students and staff at Carencro Heights collected hundreds of toys, books, and educational items. All the items were given to foster children as Christmas gifts and birthday gifts throughout the year.

Dustin has a caring heart and a passion for helping children! He is an inspiration to so many in our community, and we would like to take the time to recognize all that he has done! We are extremely grateful for his efforts and contributions to Foster Friends over the years.

Thank you, Dustin, for being such an Outstanding Advocate for Foster Friends!
