WHEN: Friday & Saturday | August 23 & 24, 2019 | 8:00 AM - Dusk

WHERE: Eagle's Nest Ranch | 36998 Timber Dr. Elizabeth, CO 80107 

WHY: Helping Hands is a community outreach program created by the Douglas Elbert District. Its mission is to help those in need within our community with home or property improvement projects. This year’s project will benefit Eagle’s Nest Ranch, a 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Elizabeth, that provides equestrian therapy for Armed Forces and first responders suffering from PTSD and social reintegration, and children with emotional disabilities. Volunteers will help to convert a 36’ x 36’ portion of the barn into a comfortable area for families to enjoy while their loved ones are working with the horses, as well as provide an indoor area for group gatherings. We are looking for support in the form of volunteered labor or monetary and material donations. Please contact Doil Storie at doil@storieagency.com for more information.
