Los Angeles, CA – July 22, 2010 – Dusty’s Riders is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2010 Disney VoluntEARS Community Fund (DVCF) grant in the amount of $5000 from The Walt Disney Company.
Over the past four years, the DVCF has provided support to 278 worthwhile charities in the greater Los Angeles and New York Tri-State communities. The DVCF is administered by the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).
Sarah Williams, Vice-Chairman and CEO of Dusty’s Riders, remarked, “We’re thrilled to again receive a much needed grant from Disney. Their on-going support has helped us grow over the years to reach out to as many kids as possible.”
Solely run by volunteers, Dusty’s Riders uses horses and nature to help at-risk kids gain confidence, learn to make better choices in their lives and take positive steps for a better future. Since its inception in 2000, the organization has served over 1000 kids.
Dusty’s Riders is a 501(c)(3) public charity and was founded by Jessica (Crawford) Hight and Sarah (Crawford) Williams to help at-risk kids in the Los Angeles area. Because there is no paid staff, all donations go directly into the program to put kids on horses.
