Southwest Veterans Chamber of Commerce
Announces CHARITABLE contribution TO
Horse Rhythm FOUNDATION
The Southwest Veterans Chamber of Commerce (SWVCC) announced today that Horse Rhythm Foundation is one of two recipients of its quarterly Veteran Charitable Contribution Program. SWVCC will contribute $500.00 to Horse Rhythm Foundation to support its local programs.
SWVCC is a 501(c)6 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Veterans, Veteran owned and supportive businesses, and organizations that support our Veterans and their families. Larry Hellman, President of the Chamber, said, “We are very pleased to be able to make this contribution to Horse Rhythm Foundation to assist it in accomplishing it most worthy and important mission. The care of our Veterans—and First Responders—and their families, especially those scarred while performing their heroic missions, is a duty we all share. This was one of two awards we are making this quarter. With continued support from our Members sponsors, and contributors we will continue to support organizations such as Horse Rhythm Foundation for years to come.”
Horse Rhythm Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization designed to offer specialized services for Veterans, First Responders, and their families suffering with mental health disorders (PTSD) and physical disabilities (Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and amputations, etc.) due to combat or public safety tragedies. It was established and is fostered by disabled war veterans in an attempt to bridge the gap between conventional healing and whole-being wellness of mind, body, and spirit. HRF offers equine-assisted services that recognize, respect, and honor the basic value of our military, law enforcement and firefighters, as well as their families. Horse Rhythm Foundation recently relocated from its previous site on 67th Avenue to the Midwestern University campus in Glendale where it will be integrated into its College of Veterinary Medicine. Its Founder, Sahika Reilly, is a 9 1/2 year Air Force and Operation DESERT STORM Veteran. Sahika commented that “this contribution comes at an important time as we relocate our facilities to the campus of Midwestern University. We deeply appreciate the SWVCC for recognizing the value of our work in assisting Veterans in need, and look forward to continuing our membership and work with them.”
