The Importance of Charity: Why Blue Stingray Gives Back
At Blue Stingray, we’re proud of our St. Louis heritage, and we try to give back to our incredible community in as many ways as we can.
Over the last few years, we’ve built our relationship with TREE House of Greater St. Louis, a local charity that improves the lives of children with disabilities. We’d like to share information about this amazing organization with our friends and clients, as we feel that TREE House (formerly Therapeutic Horsemanship) is a great example of what St. Louis has to offer.
For more than four decades, TREE House has organized therapeutic services to its patients through an 88-acre facility in Wentzville, Missouri. The organization provides its services to more than 300 kids each year, providing patients and their families with therapy, recreation, education, and exploration (the four branches of the TREE acronym).
TREE House provides kids with an alternative path for physical therapy. Rather than work with weights in a hospital-type environment, kids learn to groom and ride horses. Some even go on to compete in equestrian events. They maintain positive attitudes during therapy, and they make lifelong friends.
Blue Stingray contributes to charitable organizations like TREE House as part of our commitment to the St. Louis region. We believe that businesses have a responsibility to support these types of excellent efforts, and we’re proud supporters of the TREE House mission.
