Dante, a two-year-old mustang, doesn’t hesitate to claim the donation!

The Canton Modern Woodmen of America Chapter assisted the Healing Hands Youth Ranch (HHYR) in raising $1,500 and the Modern Woodmen home office matched those funds for a $3,000 donation to the HHYR.  The purpose of the Waleska nonprofit, founded by Jennifer Simonis, is to use horses to help young people make better life choices.  The funds will be used to buy materials to build shelters for the therapy horses.  Modern Woodmen is a Fraternal Financial organization helping families plan and save for their future.  For questions or to get involved, contact Chad Atkinson at (404) 797-8108.

HHYR is hosting an open house, 1-5 p.m. Oct. 12, with concessions and pony rides.  The address is 114 Addington Ln., Waleska.
