We will have a Giving Tree at the December 8 TVDCTA Awards Banquet & Christmas Party to benefit your choice of charitable causes: 1) Palmer House, 2) the MGHSE Foundation, and 3) Flint Ridge Farm Tornado Relief Fund (FRF lost all the barn roofs, half the green barn, indoor riding arena, fencing, winter’s hay, etc. on November 30).
The Palmer House in Mississippi, a 501(c)3 organization, has a riding program for abused kids. MGHSE Foundation, a 5 01(c)3 organization is a subsidiary of the AIDB Foundation (Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind) and has a riding program. Any riding clothes, tack, saddle pads, etc. that you are no longer need could find a good home at the Palmer House or at the MGHSE Foundation. If you would bring them to the Awards Dinner/Christmas party Denise will see that they get distributed. Do include a card stating your name, address, email and a description (and dollar value) or your donation so that the 501(c)3 organization can thank you and provide you with documentation for your income tax return. Monetary donations will be accepted for Palmer House, MGHSE Foundation, and Flint Ridge Farm Tornado Relief Fund. The TVDCTA Giving Tree will be decorated with your donations and will share some of our own good fortune with others.
