The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Ray of Light Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to provide a place where animals and people can form healthy connections in a safe environment.
The farm is open to the public six days a week. A visit may be a casual stroll around the grounds to see the horses and farm animals, or it may be a more structured time, such as taking horseback riding lessons or engaging in other equestrian pursuits. We offer a range of activities for children through adults on an ongoing schedule and in celebration of holidays or other special events. We strive to offer a safe and enjoyable environment for animals and people at all levels of experience and abilities.
I have taken riding lessons here for many years. I have seen that they are a very dedicated to caring for their animals. They rescue "premarin foals" that would be destroyed & adopt them out. They provide activities throughout the year for the community; draft horses hitched to a wagon provide a "Spooky Halloween Ride" and Holiday Sleigh rides in Dec. There is an Easter egg hunt, and other activities for children. I have taken people to walk around the grounds to enjoy the horses & other animals. Staff is always pleasant, obviously dedicated to their work. This is a good organization to support, both financially and as a volunteer.
