Since August of 2008 we have had young adults from the Alpine Transition & Employment Center (ATEC) assist us with our mission for 2 hours every morning Monday through Friday. 

You may have noticed coming in to find the supplements have been done, the bathroom cleaned or the floors mopped.  

Each morning they start out with doing the AM feeding and then move on to other assignments. 

Like afternoon volunteers, they have opportunities to have riding lessons and have rightfully earned their volunteer t-shirts.  

Some of these volunteers have a diagnosis of Prader-Willi syndrome which requires them to be supervised very carefully around food. 

So we ask everyone to not leave food out and to take it with them as they depart the Center each day. 

This is very important to help them and would be a real act of kindness towards these special volunteers.

Thank You!
