The Union City Elks Lodge 1617 recently visited the Coweta Organization for Riding, Rehabilitation and Learning - CORRAL - in Roscoe to learn more about the therapeutic riding program and to meet some of its participants.
The lodge gave a donation of $2,000 from the Elks National Foundation to CORRAL for its equine activities for special needs children and adults. The funds were used to purchase some much-needed items, including a Hippo-Helper device that stabilizes unsteady riders, allowing the side walkers to focus more effectively on exercises for the rider.
The donation was also used for purchasing rider awards for horse shows and for a brush cutter.
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is second to the United States government in charitable donations nationwide. This year, the National Elks Foundation will donate more than $27.5 million grants and scholarships.
