Community Event - Tamaya Horse Rehab and the St. Felix Pantry

Tuesday, March 27 from 1-4 p.m.

Each year, FBEC attendees are invited to participate in a volunteer experience with the intention of leaving our host neighborhood a little better than we found it. The 2018 volunteer event will be at the Hyatt's Tamaya Horse RehabThis event will be limited to 15 participants. Boxed lunches will be provided. Volunteers will have the opportunity to brush horses, clean and condition tack and help the facility with general housekeeping and maintenance activities. The Tamaya Horse Rehab takes neglected, abused, unwanted and abandoned horses throughout New Mexico and rehabilitate them, putting them in the best situation possible and bring them into their own.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire~Sharon Ralls Lemon

For those that aren't able to attend, but still want to leave a mark on the city, please consider donating either cash or non-perishable food items to be given to the St. Felix Pantry, a local food pantry that serves 1,000 individuals each week.  St. Felix Pantry provides, free of charge, food, clothing, household items, and referral services. But people served by the Pantry need more than that; they need respect for their dignity, compassion for their suffering, hope for their children, and a place that welcomes and empowers them for their journey. These are the real gifts of the Pantry.
