Little Bit honors corporate supporters with Corporate Strides Awards at Oct. 11 luncheon

Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center recently announced its 2017 Corporate Strides award winners: Armour Unsderfer Engineering (AUE) and Salesforce. These two companies and their employees are recognized for going above and beyond through volunteer service and financial support to Little Bit. Both companies will be honored at the upcoming Making Strides Community Luncheon on Oct. 11, at the Bellevue Club.

AUE provided pro-bono services that led to the installation of a new mounting platform and ramps in one of three riding arenas, allowing Little Bit to expand class times available to riders with disabilities. In addition, the company has provided financial support to Little Bit. AUE is a full-service structural consulting firm providing expertise throughout the Puget Sound region as well as the nation.

Salesforce was the top volunteer group at Little Bit in 2016, contributing 258 hours of volunteer service in addition to financial support. Volunteers laid gravel and dug trenches to ensure paddocks drain properly in the wet winter months, washed fencing for the annual horse shows, installed tractor shed panels, decorated the entire facility for the community holiday party, and more. Salesforce is the world’s number-one Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform.

“Little Bit succeeds in providing essential equine-assisted therapies and activities, largely due to volunteer service,” said Paula J. Del Giudice, executive director of Little Bit. “Corporate volunteer groups often help maintain our 17-acre site, including landscaping, building, painting, cleaning, and much more. With corporate volunteer service and financial support, we can make every dollar we receive in donations stretch further, resulting in the ability to provide life-changing Little Bit experiences to even more participants.”
