A 25-year-old Santa Clarita Valley business owner hand-delivered gifts to homeless children on Skid Row this Christmas holiday.
Santa Clarita native and California State University, Northridge graduate, Alan Campos, 25, owns SCV iRepair, Northridge iRepair and Smarte Fix, and has made a point to give back to his community by donating to the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry and providing an annual scholarship to CSUN students.
“I’ve been grateful for the things I’ve had. I don’t come from a family with a lot of money,” Campos said. “The main goal is just to help out in different ways. Through my business, I can do that.”
In 2014, Campos was honored as one of the SCV 40 Under Forty and decided to donate Christmas gifts to children in need.
This year, he decided to do the same, but wanted to deliver the gifts in person.
So, Campos and a friend went to Walmart where they bought more than 75 toys and 15 blankets, wrapped each one and brought them to the Union Rescue Mission in Downtown Los Angeles on Christmas.
“Those kids out there just don’t have anything,” Campos said. “When they were unwrapping the gifts, their smiles were just invaluable. Growing up, I was surrounded by so many good people. I think your environment plays a good role and it feels natural just to help out.”
“He is the most amazing human being ever,” said family friend, Lori Bledsoe, whose sons grew up with Campos. “There’s not many young adults at that age that do what he does.”
