Another way to help ATRC: When you shop at Walmart, Travelocity, Overstock, and other retailers, ATRC will receive a donation at no extra cost to you. Learn more at iGive through this special link: http://www.igive.com/AlbanyTherapeuticRidingCenter?jltest=1
Announcing a new way to help ATRC: We are now a community cash partner for CLYNK, a bottle and can recycling program available through Hannaford Supermarkets. If you have signed up for CLYNK at www.clynk.com and received specially tagged bags in which to put bottles and cans, when you drop them off at a participating Hannaford store, the money is credited to your account. You can then go on clynk.com, click on community cash partners, type Albany Therapeutic Riding Center in the search box and click on the "donate" button. This will enable you to make a donation to our account. We also have bags specifically tagged for ATRC that we will give out to our supporters at various events (lessons, volunteer events, board meetings, community events, etc) - all you have to do is put your deposit bottles and cans within and drop off at a participating Hannaford store and the money will be credited to our account. We hope that either way you use CLYNK (our bags or yours), you will know how very much we appreciate your support!
We have two very big needs right now: volunteers and donations. We are powered by both. Volunteers receive training and can be age 14+. We need lesson volunteers who serve as side and lead walkers as we cannot hold lessons without these important people. We also need stablehand volunteers for feeding/watering/mucking. Additionally, we are 100 percent funded by donations - that means hay, feed, utilities, repairs, equipment, blacksmithing, and other operating expenses. Our only paid person is a part-time stablehand. Other than that, we run on the love of our volunteers. Can you help with a donation at this time? There are several ways to donate including mailing a check or cash to ATRC 182 Martin Rd Extension Voorheesville, NY 12186 or online to www.gofundme.com/atrc123. You can also sign up for Amazon Smile using our special link below so that every purchase counts toward funding ATRC (we get $5 for every $1,000 people collectively purchase) or by buying a Bravelet bracelet also from a link below. Every bit helps. If you are part of a church/synagogue group, youth group, or the like who does fundraising for not for profits, we would love to be on your list as a beneficiary and are so grateful for your consideration. If your company has a foundation or matching gifts program, please remember us. Thank you for your consideration. Please like our Facebook page at "Friends of Albany Therapeutic Riding Center". We cannot do what we have done for 35 years without you!!!
Bravelets are bracelets, watches, charms and scarves where your purchase gives $10 to help ATRC! Shop here or create your own - many colors to match your outfits - thank you for your support:
We recognize that you have many organizations to which to choose to donate and we appreciate those who choose to support us. We are a 501c3 and your donation is tax-deductible to the amount permitted by law. You may donate online at www.gofundme.com/atrc123 or send checks made payable to ATRC 182 Martin Road Extension Voorheesville, NY 12186.
