SQUARE PEG FOUNDATION
November 20, 2010
Square peg is the most unique and wonderful organization I have either professionally or personally ever been involved in. My son has been involved since he was 5 years old. He started riding and learning invaluable life lessons like caring, sharing and acceptance of others. My son has several challenges that left him feeling very different than other kids and not accepted. He found at Square Peg he was accepted, and cared about by not only the remarkable staff but other students at Square Peg. He now is in high school, volunteers all summer with helping other kids in the summer camps and continues volunteers throughout the school year. Square Peg is the place were everyone really does fit. This organization has changed my sons life. He now has groups of high school kids from his school who help out a couple of times a year as community service projects and they also enjoy it. He continues to now ride in their new polo program and has found he loves it. I volunteer whenever I can and love working with the Staff, Board members and clients.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My son has become a better more caring person thanks to his involvement in Square Peg. He always has a place that loves and cares about him which has been invaluable when he has been stuck at home medical issues. In addition, he has learned to ride, take care of the horses and other animals and learning Polo.
