The 2019 Day of Caring Volunteer Event is right around the corner.

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in a college-wide volunteer opportunity at Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 29. Join us for a rewarding afternoon of outreach, service, community and engagement.

Volunteer by March 15! Sign up below.

Opened in 1969 as the first therapeutic riding center built especially for the purpose of serving those with special needs in North America, the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center strives to focus on what individuals can accomplish, not on what they cannot. Today, the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center serves riders of all ages who have physical, emotional or cognitive disabilities. Learn more at cheffcenter.org.

Volunteer information:

Volunteers should dress in jeans, WMU shirts, and comfy close toed shoes, tennis shoes or boots. Feel free to bring sweatshirts, coats, gloves and hats as needed. We will be working on some painting projects, as well as some light outdoor clean-up to prepare for the coming season.

With regards to transportation, please consider carpooling. (The Cheff Center is located at 8450 N 43rd St, Augusta, Michigan.) The college will provide snacks and bottled water for volunteers.
