Caught in the Act
Volunteer with Peace Area Riding for the Disabled Society
by Fringina Mukaga, Communications
The job of maintenance personnel requires flexibility, skill, and knowledge in a wide range of trades. For many non-profits, finding the right volunteer to provide maintenance support often proves to be a daunting task. Luckily for Peace Area Riding for the Disabled Society (PARDS), the right person found them. While dropping his daughter off at PARDS where she volunteered, Dave took a look around and noticed that “they could use a hand”. With that realization he offered his services as a facility maintenance volunteer.
