All members of the Mt. Elizabeth Academy community contribute to these projects through funds generated by tuition, fundraisers, and donations.
At Beyond Limits Therapeutic Riding, the mission is to provide therapeutic horseback riding and other services for children and adults that promote and enrich their physical, developmental, psychological, and social well-being to encourage them to reach beyond limits. In particular, Beyond Limits teaches lessons specifically tailored to the needs of individuals with disabilities. Beyond Limits has 7 horses, 39 riders, 3 instructors, and an abundance of space and opportunity! Their new home at Watkins Farm has 2 outdoor arenas, a fully enclosed indoor arena, miles of trails, and acres of pasture for both horses and riders to play in. It also has given us the opportunity to host our own horse shows for our riders, and other riders in the community.
Each year at Christmas, Mt. Elizabeth Academy invites all families to share in the joy of giving by supporting ‘Helping Mamas’.
Helping Mamas is the baby supply bank of Georgia. https://helpingmamas.org/
We ask you to look through the list of items and decide what would be the perfect gift for your family to donate should you choose to participate. Nothing is too big or too small. All donations are so appreciated and well received.
The items collected will be given to mamas in need during the month of January.
In Georgia, 40% of single female parent households live in poverty. One in three moms has had to choose between diapers and food for their babies, as WIC and Food Stamps don’t cover the purchase of essential baby items such as diapers, wipes, car seats and cribs. Helping Mamas provides costly and much needed baby supplies to organizations serving families in need in order to provide a safe and healthy environment for the families to thrive.
All donations can be brought to Mt. E and we will place them in our reception area. For your convenience, you can shop online as well.
and type in ‘Helping’ (as the first name) and Mamas (as the last name) to view and purchase items needed!
