Other Ways in Which We Need Your Support…
Every year, Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas provides therapy visitation to thousands of children and adults that are of the most needy populations within the Portland/Vancouver area.
The cost of many of the activities that we do, particularly into senior and rehab facilities and schools, are covered by minimal donations that help cover our expenses, by those places that we visit that have budgets for special activities. There are, however, many other requests that we receive each year that are from individuals and places that we don’t feel comfortable asking for a donation, due to their budgetary limitations For these, we depend on the generosity of people like you, who understand and appreciate the wonderful and unique experiences that our special llamas and alpacas bring to those who can most benefit from their special qualities.
Please help us by making a generous DONATION today, so that we can continue to say “YES!” to every request that will best serve our wonderful community!
Below is a list of appearances and therapy visits that we have made, thanks to your generous donations:
