Volunteer Celebration

Aug 4, 2021 | News

Last week we were so thrilled to be able to celebrate our generous and selfless volunteers at our Volunteer Celebration, with the help of Elevation Outreach. Thank you to everyone who came out. Our volunteers are what make our programs run. Each year, the volunteers in our programs (side-walkers, horse-leaders, and barn help) donate thousands of hours of their precious time. There is no way we could serve our clients or take care of our horses without them, especially since just one session typically takes at least three hands-on individuals to operate. Additionally, all of our work day volunteers do a tremendous job of taking care of our grounds and facilities as well as working on special projects we wouldn’t be able to get done without them. Thank you so much volunteers!
