Hirsch Insurance Agency of Virginia Beach has announced the initiation of a master charity program created to strengthen the community they serve. The agency pledges to select a new beneficiary every 90 days, working closely with nonprofit organizations and community leaders to seek out those who most need help. Their desire is to bring awareness to important local causes by forming campaigns which aid worthwhile organizations, families and individuals. “We’re passionate about activating community support for the beneficiaries of our Community Program,” said Steven Hirsch, owner of Hirsch Insurance Agency.

To debut the new community involvement program, Hirsch has elected to support Equi-Kids Therapeutic Riding Program. The program was founded almost 30 years ago and has since grown into one of the largest accredited equine riding programs in the country, benefitting close to 140 people with special needs every week. Situated on 92 beautiful acres, Equi-Kids’ indoor riding arena and 24-stall barn house a team of hard-working horses offering a variety of equine-assisted activities to children with Down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, amputation, mental and physical disabilities, ADD and more. Working with a horse allows kids to be transported out of their disability to a place of trust and confidence which aids in physical and mental healing and greater independence.

“The freedom and happiness children experience through the equine-assisted programs are necessary for the improvement of their lives, and we want to help support this mission,” said Hirsch. “We hope the whole community rallies to embrace the Equi-Kids riders!”

The donations page for each featured campaign will be accompanied by a fully detailed story, and the team at Hirsch Insurance Agency will spread the word through its own network of customers, business associates, neighbors and friends. To join the agency in support of local children with disabilities, donors may visit http://hirschagency.com/causes/galloping-toward-better-life/ and are asked to share the information with their own personal and professional networks. The page even showcases a unique way to contribute to this worthy cause without donors feeling the impact in their own wallets.

Hirsch Insurance also produces a monthly publication, Our Hometown magazine, which will use a full page to highlight each selected Community Cause. The electronic Flipbook version of the special holiday issue featuring the fundraiser for Equi-Kids Therapeutic Riding Program may be enjoyed at http://hirschagency.com/magazines/.
