The Lubbock Monterey Chapter of Ambucs recently received a $5,000.00 grant from The Community Foundation of West Texas to fund the AMBUCS AMTRYKE Therapeutic Program. We are honored in receiving such a grant. Lubbock Monterey Chapter of AMBUCS is a non profit 501(c)3 organization serving the South Plains area with the mission focus of two major programs: Scholarships for Therapist and AMTRYKE Therapeutic Program.
The Community Foundation of West Texas grant will be used to purchase therapeutic AMTRYKES. Each AMTRYKE is adapted and accessorized to meet the recipient's individual needs. The AMTRYKE benefits the recipient by increasing muscle strength, coordination and socialization while having fun riding their AMTRYKE with their family and friends. The AMTRYKE Program serves children, adults, and vets.
Robbye Hendryx and Elizabeth Middleton were instrumental in writing the grant submission. They expressed the fund will be so helpful in purchasing additional AMTRYKES for those who qualify. AMTRYKES are given to a qualified recipient at no cost. We are honored and appreciative in receiving the $5,000.00 grant from The Community Foundation of West Texas.
The Community Foundation of West Texas was established in 1981 and is a regional philanthropic entity created by and for the people of the Texas South Plains Region. The Community Foundation exists to improve quality of life in this region by helping area donors to give in ways that make an enduring impact on their community. In 2020, The Community Foundation and its affiliates awarded more than $5.7 million in grants and scholarships, funding projects of hundreds of non profit organizations, schools, and government agencies.
