Dear Community Helpers,
Thank you for offering to come to the ranch and help us with these one-time projects. Please email our Volunteer Manager Miriam at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you would like to contribute.
Examples are: painting stalls, fencing repairs, and landscaping.
We are also in need of material and services for renovation projects such as making our bathroom ADA accessible, improving the fencing, and general maintenance. If you work at a company that provides any of these services and is willing to support with this, or you know someone who could help, please let us know.
45 Volunteers From Total Orthodontics & 4 Hours
On Saturday, October 29, 2021 we had a large group of about 45 volunteers from Total Orthodontics (Board of Directors, staff, clients, families, etc.) come out to the Ranch to help with projects. It was the first service group to come help at our new home, and we are so grateful that they chose Promise Ranch for their annual volunteer project. In 4 hours they completed sanding and spray painting the round pen, leveling, cleaning and painting stalls, pulling weeds all over the property, moving logs, and also got very creative in painting the old barrels and turning them into little masterpieces. We are so thankful for their help and this great community support! If you know of any organizations or other groups who might want to give their time, we’d love to talk with them! Thank you again to Total Orthodontics and their team for generously being a part of the mission of Promise Ranch!
Thank you For Your Help, Convergint Technologies!
We are fortunate to have had a very large crew of volunteers from Convergint Technologies come to the Ranch on Friday, June 18th, 2021 and chip downed wood for the nature trail, repair stalls, welding and painting, as well as other maintenance tasks. We are so grateful for their help!
Here’s what one parent said about her son’s special project experience …
Now we all know where to go on the ranch, thanks to Wyatt Bradfield and Troop 854!
Wow! Thank you Jake Reynolds and Troop 845!
Jake Reynolds of Scout Troop 845 completed a two-phase project for his Eagle Scout badge with the support of his family and many friends.
In October, the metal fence area viewed in the photographs, were wired brushed and anti-corrosion spray applied where necessary. Then the bars were painted low gloss white. In November, Jake supervised the spreading and leveling of 8 cubic feet of rock-free dirt in the barn walkway. This will ensure safer and improved footing for people and our equine family. All mats were cleaned-off and repositioned to the edge of each stall.
Thank you very much, Jake, for choosing Promise Ranch to earn your Eagle Scout badge as grounds improvement is a constant time-consuming endeavor on our beautiful property.
Thank you Rock Canyon High School Seniors!
Robert Herting and Troop 280
Robert Herting, his scout mates from Troop 280, and parents made important safety and beautification improvements at Promise Ranch on Saturday, August 17. He successfully received donations for the purchase of pea gravel which was spread throughout turnout and stall openings. Three rubber blue barrels were bought and numbers painted on for riding instruction. The boys sanded down and painted white all the cavalletti. The ranch also now sports a fresh coat of white paint on the outdoor metal table and four chairs.
Thanks to Robert’s collection drive and Scout Troop 280, they were able to upgrade to pea gravel! The collection drive took place at King Soopers on Lincoln Road in Parker and PRTR is the beneficiary of the following much needed supplies: 331 paper towel rolls, 862 rolls of toilet paper, 29 packages of napkins, 263 tissue boxes, 653 cans of cat food, and 113 hand soap containers! A big shout-out to Robert and Gregory Herting, Preston Holt, Jason Westbarn, and Mr. and Mrs. Herting.
Robert was an excellent planner and leader in directing his peers through his multi-prong projects for Promise Ranch. Thank You!
