Hello September!

As we bid farewell to the warmth of summer and welcome the crispness of fall, September brings with it a bittersweet feeling. But fear not, dear friends, for this transition is filled with delightful surprises and new beginnings. So, let us put on our cozy sweaters, grab a pumpkin spice latte, and embrace the changing seasons with a smile. Sweet September is here to remind us that there is beauty in every season and joy in every moment. Let's make the most of this month and create unforgettable memories together.

Rising Stars Therapeutic Farm

We love our volunteers!!

We would like to take this opportunity to announce our appreciation for the incredible volunteers who have dedicated over 1,460 hours of service at our therapeutic farm in the past year. Our volunteers have been integral to our success, and we could not have achieved our goals without their support. They have selflessly given their time and energy, and we are truly grateful for their contribution. We are constantly amazed by the dedication and passion of our volunteers and are honored to have them as part of our team.

We look forward to continuing our work together and making a positive difference in the lives of those we serve.

August Recap:

We want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who helped us collect backpacks and school supplies for children and disadvantaged youth in our communities. Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to distribute backpacks locally and help ensure that all kids have the same opportunities to start the school year right. Your support has significantly impacted these children's lives, and we cannot thank you enough. We look forward to continuing to work together to make a positive difference in our communities.
