Donations sought for therapeutic riding centers affected by Hurricane Harvey

Horse Eye

Hurricane Harvey is breaking rainfall from a tropical system records in the United States with more than 51 inches of rain as of Tuesday-and the rain keeps falling. People are evacuating, and the risk to humans and animals continues to grow. USA Today reported that Harvey will be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, with a potential estimated cost of $160 billion. We watch the news and wonder what we can do.

The PATH Intl. Disaster Relief Fund was created in 2005 to help centers affected by such disasters. The purpose of the fund is to assist PATH Intl. Member Centers with an immediate need in funding expenses not normally covered by operating insurance after natural or man-made catastrophic disasters. Since its inception, PATH Intl. has given thousands of dollars to help these centers with outstanding needs.

While it is still too early to tell how much damage the heavy rains and flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey have done to PATH Intl. Member Centers, it is never too early to help. Your donations to the PATH Intl. Disaster Relief Fund will help centers rebuild. Tap here to donate.

PATH Intl. has also set up a way for people to donate supplies to centers in need and for centers to list items they need to help them rebuild. Visit PATH Intl. Region 8 Events on Facebook.
