Community Giving Program - Horses & Horizons Therapeutic Learning Center

We thought with all the recent blogging about funny news stories and unique toilets we could use this post to give you an update on our Community Giving Program. Last time we blogged about it we donated to the local West Hazleton Fire Department. With that being a huge success our next project was adopting a horse from Horses & Horizons Therapeutic Riding Center.

Monkey Biz
Horses & Horizons is a non-profit organization located in Tamaqua, PA. They are a therapeutic program for children and adults who have a wide variety of physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. The therapeutic riding center helps with coordination, balance, posture, attention span, concentration, speech, learning, and the forming of interpersonal relationships.

This program is staffed by volunteers and owners, Harvey and Elaine Smith, who cover all operating expenses through fundraising and donations.

Vintage Tub & Bath recently made a donation to the Adopt-A-Horse Program for this center and was named the proud parent of Monkey Biz, a 26-year-old horse who's been involved in the program since he was four years old.

Looking to get involved? There are many volunteer opportunities and ways to give. This week, July 9th-13th, there is a Horses & Horizons Summer Day Camp and volunteers are needed! You can also donate any amount or even sponsor your own horse. And don't forget to check out Horses & Horizons on Facebook!
