A dear friend and client of mine has recently started a new program in the Midlothian, Va. area called New Hope on 4 Hoofs.
This is a great program pairing children who are grieving due to loss of a parent, whether to death, military duty, divorce, etc. with horses and dogs in a theraputic environment meant to give the children new hope and encouragement.
I think this is a wonderful program and much needed in our communities. The group is just getting started”officially” but has been working with children and horses and dogs for some time now.
They are in need of paddock boots and breeches in childrens sizes. If you have any that your children have outgrown the group would be so thankful if you would consider donating them. This is a 501 (c) non-profit organization and you’ll be able to see where your donations go.
You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at 434-426-4049 and I can give you an address to send your donations. I can also pick things up if I’m in the area. Besides paddock boots and breeches, the program is in need of tack, especially english riding gear, halters, lead ropes, bridles, blankets, etc. If you have any of these items please email me and I can put you in touch with Melinda Martin, who is the CEO and founder of the group.
Thanks in advance for your help.
