Tobosa Developmental Services will soon kick off a fundraiser, as the organization seeks to build a children’s campus for its children’s services program.

Melinda Olivas, marketing and communications coordinator for Tobosa, said the organization will launch its Step By Step, Brick by Brick campaign July 1. The fundraiser will allow people to purchase a 4-inch by 8-inch brick for $50, an 8-inch by 8-inch granite tile for $100 or a bench for $600.

When the campaign begins, people can purchase a brick, tile or bench on websites of Tobosa or the organization’s Los Pasitos Early Intervention program as well as on the social media pages of both Tobosa and Los Pasitos.

People also will have the option of making a purchase by filling out a form available at Tobosa’s administrative building at 110 E. Summit St., Olivas said.

Money from the fundraising campaign will go toward an effort to create a children’s campus for Tobosa’s children’s programs. Bricks and tiles will be used for walkways and walls in and outside Tobosa facilities.

One of the first steps in making the campus a reality is to move the Los Pasitos Early Intervention program to Tobosa’s current administration building on Summit Street to accommodate growth in the early intervention program that serves the families of children from ages birth to three years of age who have or are at risk of having developmental delays.

The administrative staff will then be moved to Los Pasitos’ current facility at 204 W. Second St.

“So we will just be switching,”  Rosy Rubio, Tobosa Developmental Services CEO, said.

With Los Pasitos relocated, the program will be closer to the Little Steps Learning Center at 111 E. Reed St. and its Joe H. Madrid Educational Center, Rubio said. By bringing all three programs in closer proximity to one another, that will create a campus.
