Sponsoring One Teen for a 6-Week Rodeo Course, Assisting with Ranch Upkeep
VANCOUVER, WA—MAY 11, 2018 – Every year, Wilbur-Ellis, through its Impact Funds Program, allocates funds for contributions that benefit the communities where its employees live and work. These Impact Funds can create a sizable effect within these localities. Recently, Wilbur-Ellis’ Feed division donated $2,150 to Silver Buckle Ranch to assist in sponsoring one teen for a six-week long Teen Wrangler course, grounds maintenance around the ranch and aid in the purchase of a newer tractor to replace the existing 1964 model.
Located about 14 miles north of Vancouver, Washington, in the Bush Prairie community, Silver Buckle Ranch has played a positive role in the community over the last 41 years. The organization aims to impact lives through equine-related activities, and partners with Clark County Juvenile Restorative Justice, as well as many counseling and community service providers to deliver a unique opportunity for youth to experience what horses can teach humans.
With a strong commitment and a sense of shared responsibility for nearly a century, Wilbur-Ellis positively impacts the communities where its employees live and work through the use of these Impact Funds. To date, Wilbur-Ellis has donated over $6.5 million to its local communities. For more information, please visit www.wilburellis.com.
