How You Can Help the Horses and Horsemen Affected by the California Wildfires
The most critical need right now is money, rather than donations of tack, feed, bedding, etc. Donated money can be used to buy those needed supplies more efficiently and faster than trying to ship supplies to those affected. So, the National HBPA is asking all horsemen to please consider making a monetary donation to a GoFundMe account set up by The Stronach Group, Santa Anita Park and Del Mar. Any amount helps, and 100% of the donations will go directly to those affected by the Lilac Fire.
“The National HBPA stands with all the horsemen impacted by these fires, and we salute everyone who has offered to help,” said Eric Hamelback, CEO of the National HBPA. “The horses and horsemen in California need our help now and in the coming weeks, so please give what you can to support them.
“The National HBPA Foundation will also be stepping up to help, and horsemen can donate to that as well,” Hamelback added.
To make a donation to the GoFundMe account, go to https://www.gofundme.com/thoroughbredcare, or to donate to the National HBPA Foundation, go to https://nationalhbpa.com/donate/.
