Edited Press Release
The Homes for Horses Coalition encourages Americans to make a commitment to helping a horse rescue organization for just one day. “These rescues are so often in need of help with short-term labor intensive projects,” says Cindy Gendron, the Coordinator of the Coalition. “A committed group working hard for one day can make a huge difference by completing necessary projects, such as, fence repair, building shelters to protect horses from the elements, or putting up hay for the winter.”
What people do doesn’t matter. What matters is that they participate. For those that can’t do physical labor, they can help by checking out a groups wish list and shopping for needed items. One way to find horse rescues in a particular area is to go to the Homes for Horses Coalition website www.homesforhorses.org and click on the member page where you will find contact information for rescues listed by state.
Always contact a rescue prior to visiting, so they can be prepared to put your efforts to good use, and always pre-arrange dropping off donations. Most of these organizations have regular volunteer programs, and one day of service may lead to many more fulfilling days of volunteering. Go out and make a difference for horses on Make a Difference Day!
