November 15th marked National Philanthropy Day, a yearly observance begun by the Association of Fundraising Professionals and made official by a presidential proclamation in 1986. The Association has regional and local chapters across the country and celebrates those who give back to their community with their donated time, in-kind and volunteering support.
It's that time of year where thanks are plentiful but year-round, McEnearney Associates proudly give back to the local communities in which they live and work. In addition to the contributions from my Associates to communities throughout the Greater Washington, D.C. region., I am proud of the work I do for the Lift Me Up! therapeutic horse riding program.
“I thoroughly enjoy my volunteer work with the Lift Me Up! therapeutic horseback riding program in Great Falls. I assist children and adults in gaining physical and mental strength through horseback riding. I groom and saddle horses for the riders and then assist them during their lessons. What a wonderful way to spend a day!”
