BENEFITING: HUGS FOR HORSES AND CHILDREN YOUTH RANCH INC
ORGANIZER: HUGS FOR HORSES AND CHILDREN YOUTH RANCH INC
Summer will be upon us soon. As a child, summer vacation was always the best, wasn’t it? Do you have a summer from your childhood that stands out in your mind as a favorite? Well, last summer was one of the best summers in my ADULT life because I had the opportunity to work at H.U.G.S. Ranch.
H.U.G.S. Ranch sits on a beautiful 12 acre property in Byron Center, Michigan. It is home to rescued, donated and unwanted horses that would otherwise have nowhere to go. These horses along with many volunteers help children who have suffered emotional trauma, mental or physical illness, or developmental issues find peace and acceptance. It is a place where they can be themselves without judgment and ultimately find healing. All the programs are offered free of charge and no one is turned away. H.U.G.S. is funded entirely through donations.
There is a feeling of peace at the ranch. Seeing children who suffer from autism and other developmental issues experience joy by working with and riding the horses and seeing how they progress over the weeks is a most rewarding experience. Being a part of the ranch has been a great source of joy to me. I have received as much if not more than l have given and I look forward to returning to the ranch this summer.
Will you consider making a donation to help H.U.G.S. Ranch continue to reach out to children in need?
Thank you for your support!
