Hezel Associates Gives Back at ARISE
- Published on Thursday, 02 July 2015 00:00
It’s important for companies to give back to society and provide support to local organizations. To this end, Hezel Associates looks for opportunities for our team to volunteer services, provide assistance, or help out financially. This week the team was excited to offer our time and energy at ARISE at the Farm, an accessible, inclusive recreation center located on a 77-acre working horse farm in Chittenango, NY. Since 1979, ARISE (http://www.ariseinc.org/) has provided opportunities so that people with disabilities can live freely and independently in the community. ARISE at the Farm is open throughout the year and offers a variety of recreational activities for disabled and handicapped individuals living throughout Central New York.
Our team spent the day clearing brush on the Sensory Trail. This area on the Farm is used for horseback riding and offers camp participants the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds (and smells) of nature. It was hard at times but definitely worth the effort as we saw campers enjoying their time at the Farm.
