Local Organization Receives Large Donation
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - An organization that helps people with physical disabilities got a big donation today.
The Rising Stars Therapeutic Riding Center got a check from the Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge Dealership.
The organization helps local children and adults with disabilities through therapeutic riding and therapy. Their programs benefit adults and children coping with Down's Syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, vision loss and other problems.
"We help these people, being on a horse helps people with physical disabilities to gain muscle control, core strength and balance," said Marni Poreth, from the Rising Stars Therapeutic Riding Center.
Lithia presented them with a check for three thousand dollars.
The center serves people with disabilities across southern Idaho and northern Nevada. They are located just south of Twin Falls.
