Caps Of Love Donates Chair To Vinceremos

The Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center was recently the beneficiary of a collaboration with local nonprofit Caps of Love, which recycles bottle caps and uses the proceeds to buy parts to refurbish wheelchairs or buy new chairs with special capabilities. Vinceremos, meanwhile, provides equine-assisted activities for children and adults with disabilities. Valerie Mathieu from Caps of Love (above, with Vinceremos CEO Bill Carter) received an unusual chair through a donation. It was on tracks and equipped with all the bells and whistles to travel over uneven, wet or sandy ground, and she immediately thought of Vinceremos. She called Ruth Menor, chief program director at Vinceremos, and offered to donate it to the center for use by clients. “We are so happy to have this unique piece of equipment available for our riders thanks to Caps of Love,” Menor said.
