[Raleigh, NC] AgCarolina Farm Credit is proud to announce a $3,000 donation to Walk in My Shoes Therapeutic Riding, Johnston County’s leading therapeutic riding program. The organization’s mission is to provide safe and fun equine assisted activities to all ages.
Employees have the option to participate in “A Cause a Quarter” each quarter. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the association. Participants are able to wear jeans each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the third quarter of 2021 was Walk in My Shoes Therapeutic Riding. With employee and Association contributions, the total donation amount is $3,000.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit’s employees are encouraged to be active participants in their local communities,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter is the product of an employee suggestion and has been a great way for our team to understand how we can all work together to make an impact. There are many great organizations throughout eastern North Carolina doing great things like the folks with Walk in My Shoes. AgCarolina Farm Credit, and its employees, are proud to present these funds to Walk in My Shoes. It is our hope they will continue to grow and make a positive difference for the people in and around Johnston County.”
