RIDERS RETURN AND QUILTING WITH CARE

 

Due to the pandemic, Halleck Creek Ranch had to halt in-person riding lessons last spring. The organization helps people with disabilities live a life without barriers through therapeutic horseback riding, which is a valuable form of physical and mental therapy and an effective way for them to access rugged terrain. Halleck Creek Ranch leaders are thrilled to now welcome back riders to the ranch. The financial support and volunteers have helped the ranch make it through this very challenging past year. You can help Halleck Creek Ranch with donations that go toward programming and care for the 15 horses that live and work there. Visit halleckcreekranch.org to find out about the different ways you can support its mission.  -Photos courtesy of Halleck Creek Ranch

Mt. Tam Quilt Guild volunteers sew quilts and masks that are donated to nonprofit organizations in Marin County. Homeward Bound of Marin received 100 masks in March. Pictured (above, bottom, left to right) are LaSaunda Tate, DeShawn Kelly and Zoila Deras of Homeward Bound. Canal Alliance and Buckelew Programs also received masks to add to their supply.  May began with quilt donations to Rebecca Knight of Buckelew Programs (above, top), accepting quilts for their housing assistance programs.  MarinHealth Medical Center received quilts for their neonatal ICU and for palliative care. Papermill Creek Children’s Corner in West Marin also received 12 quilts. To further support the guild’s fundraising efforts and to keep quilting alive for future generations, the guild created a children’s book, “Emma, Lucie & the Quilted Animals.” For more information about Mt. Tam Quilt Guild and the book, visit mtqg.org.  -Photos courtesy of Mt. Tam Quilt Guild
