Heartland Horse Heroes
Heartland Horse Heroes needs a group of students with good carpentry skills to help with the following projects:
Paint the arena fence which has still never been painted in the two years since installation!
Install wood dividers in barn to create better access for students and volunteers.
Build a hitch post area using the cedar posts already here in the farm yard so students can safely bath the horses and ponies and play games like painting them with finger paints.
Replace one fence line, specifically, move one side of pasture fence that is all barbed wire with woven wire for safety.
Adjust gates in riding arena and to all pastures, they are moving and not working well.
Pasture care; specifically we have lots of fist size rocks in the pastures that should be removed so the horses don't injure their feet and become lame. One pasture is REALLY cluttered with these rocks. Also there is a wooded area in pasture that needs debris removal and clean up.
Build a chicken coup using the old oak fence boards already on site that has an outside lift door to nest boxes for persons with or without physical disabilities to collect eggs. I found a plan that would work and have at least most of the materials on site I believe if a carpenter wanted to come evaluate. This would be a portable building.
If you are interested in helping please contact Amy Hall at email@example.com

Help Joshua Bolt
Joshua is a brilliant, funny, and joyful ten-year-old! He reads, draws, writes poetry, solves math equations, creeps, climbs, and stacks things!
He is also severely brain-injured.
His brain injury is commonly called cerebral palsy. The Bolt family is implementing an intensive home-based program of physical, intellectual, and social development for Joshua. This treatment program is prescribed by The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (www.iahp.org).
The Bolts need fun-loving volunteers both to help and to play! There are even some projects you can help with from a distance.

F.A.C.E.S., an organization run strictly by volunteers, provides weekly food distribution from its pantry to eligible members in the Farmville-Prince Edward area. It distributes over 500 bags of food 52 weeks a year to its client base. Volunteers can assist with unloading and sorting shipments of food on Thursday mornings from 9am-noon. Another need is Thursday night 'bagging parties' from 5pm-7pm, when bags of food are filled for Saturday's distribution. FACES accepts volunteers on a limited basis from 7.30 to 11 a.m. Saturdays. If you are coming on Saturdays as a group of more than five people, please call the facility on Friday morning after 10 at 392-6277 first, as we often have too many volunteers on a Saturday.
