Members of Dripping Springs Elite Real Estate Professionals are rolling up their sleeves and priming their paint brushes to help Red Arena with a “wild” new look featuring jungle animals. Built of wood, these animal shapes will serve as interactive stations where riders can engage their physical therapy skills by throwing beanbags into their mouths or tossing rings around their tails. Dripping Springs Elite agents will bring the animals to life by painting the pre-cut figures with bright, colorful paint. The group will also donate $500 to Red Arena’s programs which provide multiple equine therapies for those with disabilities.
“Red Arena does so much for children and adults in our community,” said Edith Austin, chair of the Charitable Giving Committee for Dripping Springs Elite. “We are honored to be able to give back and support their efforts.”
According to Red Arena CEO and Founder Jennifer Young, the generosity of groups like Dripping Springs Elite enables the non-profit to provide low cost or free services for dozens of families throughout Central Texas.
“We are humbled by the efforts of volunteers like Dripping Springs Elite,” says Young. “Their time and talents ensure the success of our program and our ability to provide ground-breaking therapy for many riders who would not otherwise be able to afford it.”
The volunteer work is set for Thursday, Nov. 12, from 9 to 11 am at 1601 Bell Springs Road in Dripping Springs.
RED Arena serves children and adults through equine assisted physical & occupational therapies, therapeutic riding lessons, reading programs, family support, social skill groups, job training programs, and inclusive summer horse camps. RED Arena depends on over 300 volunteers annually.
