DANSVILLE, MI. (WILX) - A nonprofit that helps children by using therapeutic horses got a fresh start on Thursday from Home Depot volunteers.

The Home Depot Foundation partnered with Children and Horses United in Movement, or C.H.U.M. Therapeutic Riding Inc. in Dansville to demolish existing horse stalls, put up a new fence, and prep the ground to build a brand new horse barn.

More than 20 members of "Team Depot" took the day off work to volunteer on the project.

Children and Horses United in Movement works to share the love of horses with both disabled and non-disabled people of all ages, and veterans.

They provide on site clinics, camps and other services for those in need.

The Home Depot Foundation says that the project in Dansville is part of The Home Depot's ongoing efforts to improve the lives of U.S. military
veterans and their families.

"Giving back to veterans is personal to The Home Depot, as more than 35,000 of the company's associates have served in the military."
