LANSING, Mich. — On Thursday, August 15, The Home Depot Foundation will partner with Children and Horses United in Movement, or C.H.U.M. Therapeutic Riding Inc., to transform their local facility. The teams will work side-by-side to demo C.H.U.M’s existing horse stalls, stand up a new fence and prep the grounds to build a brand new horse barn.
C.H.U.M. Therapeutic Riding Inc. offers the opportunity to share the world of horses with both disabled and nondisabled individuals of all ages. The nonprofit provides various therapies, clinics, camps and other services to aid those in need including veterans, children and adults.
C.H.U.M. is relying on volunteers from Team Depot, The Home Depot’s associate-led volunteer force, to help perform these impactful and long-lasting projects. More than 20 members of Team Depot will complete the work on their day off.
This project in Dansville, MI is part of The Home Depot’s ongoing efforts to improve the lives of U.S. military veterans and their families. Since 2011, The Home Depot Foundation has transformed more than 43,000 homes and facilities for veterans across the country. Giving back to veterans is personal to The Home Depot, as more than 35,000 of the company’s associates have served in the military.
Volunteer projects will include:
· Demolition of existing horse stalls
· Fence installation
· Debris removal and prep for the new build
WHERE: 2180 East Dexter Trail Dansville, MI 48819
