It takes a Herd! Volunteering – Ways to give the gift of time!
The saying goes, we cannot accomplish all that we need to do without working together. This is 100% true for Unbridled Change. We need support from the community and like minded hearts to carry out our mission. Below are some of the ways people can get involved and share their talents with us!
- Special Event Help – We have special events at Unbridled Change that require extra hands! If you would like to help us during special events please let us know. The main time we need help is our main fundraiser each year: Annual Derby Party – first Saturday in May. Typical help we need: committee volunteers – people that really want to help with the planning and implementing of the event day of volunteers – 50/50 and raffle selling; manning the silent auction tables, and information tables; parking help; set-up or take down help; and help with the bands
- Committee Volunteer, Administrative Help, and Board Members – Looking to help Unbridled Change succeed as an organization? We are looking for dedicated individuals who are committed to our mission. New volunteers and fresh ideas help us continue to grow and thrive as a non-profit organization! Please contact our Founder, Michelle Holling-Brooks, for more information on how you can find a place with Unbridled Change.
- Special Projects around the farm! We often have larger improvement and clean up projects we can use an extra hand around the barn with! The barn environment and our horse’s care is the number one priority for us in helping ensure our horses and clients have an empowering environment for healing.
Typical projects help we need: barn chores and cleaning out the paddocks, fencing and maintenance help, landscaping and sprucing up the barn.
A couple of bigger projects we are currently looking for help with: laying paver-stones for walkways into the indoor arena building covered round bale feeders for the horses.
