Runnin' WJ Ranch Horseshoe Review Newsletter
We love our volunteers!
An annual banquet could not begin to show our volunteers how valuable they are to the Ranch.
If you are a current volunteer or former volunteer, thank you for loving our kids and investing in the Kingdom of God! You will forever be a part of our Ranch family!

Every year, local churches adopt us during their VBS. They might collect pocket change as a love offering or donate necessity items used around the Ranch on a regular basis.
If your church would adopt the Ranch this year during your Vacation Bible School, we would be incredibly grateful!
Here is a needs list for collection:
- Paper towel
- Toilet Paper
- Antibacterial Soap
- Hand Soap
- Band Aids
- Coffee Creamer
- Lysol Disinfectant Spray
- Gel Air Fresheners

Thank you for your support!
We are challenging local businesses, churches and families to consider making a monthly commitment of $10, $15, $20 or $25 to help an underprivileged child participate in therapeutic riding. Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
