Foster attended his local Boys & Girls Club in Albuquerque as a child and credits the experience for keeping him out of trouble and paving the way to his NFL career. “I always enjoyed spending afternoons at the Boys & Girls Club, and I’m excited for this opportunity to give back to the same club where I played football and had a blast with my friends.”
Today the Boys & Girls Club of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho serves nearly 1,500 kids, many from low and poverty income level households. From homework assistance to physical fitness activities, the Club keeps kids active, outdoors and happy.
