BITS is staying strong through the many challenges COVID-19 has posed for our little non-profit organization. Increases in prices, COVID-related health issues with our horses, and more have been a few of the challenges we have faced in the past few years.
Yet, because of our gracious donors and the efforts of many volunteers, we have provided more therapeutic services to the members of our community than ever before! And our services have never been more needed that in the last few years.
Because of the daunting effects of COVID, many of our clients have been isolated these past couple of years. Time and time again we have been told that BITS is the only social activity many of our clients feel comfortable attending. In other words, the therapeutic riding some of our clients get once a week is the ONLY place they are receiving safe social interaction (with people and horses). Not only has BITS been a safe place for them to receive therapeutic aid they need, but it is now their lifeline to social interaction.
We cannot express enough gratitude for the support that many have given us, including those of you who have donated to this Project. If you are able at this time, we are always in need of more support so that we may continue uplifting those in our community throughout these challenging times. Thank you all once again for the incredible support we have received!
