Wings of Hope

“The Togetherhood program helps to gain awareness of what opportunities exist in the community.” – Togetherhood Chair

Name of Project: Wings of Hope
YMCA: Patrick Henry YMCA
Partner: Wings of Hope Ranch
Date: September 2014

Members at the Patrick Henry YMCA offered their support to a local organization that needed help with their annual fundraiser. That organization, called Wings of Hope, rehabilitates abandoned and mistreated horses, then pairs the horses with children who may be facing conflicts or challenges. The horses and children learn to love and trust again by spending time together.

Togetherhood volunteers led fun activities during the fundraising event such as kids games, face painting, and crafts, and ran the essential functions of parking and serving food. Funds raised from the event will help horses and children find healing in their lives throughout the year.
