Swinerton Builders supports Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center

Representatives from Swinerton Builders presented Redmond's Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center with a $14,725 check last month. An additional donation brought the total donation to more than $15,000. The gift was the result of a corporate fundraiser that raised $83,766.98 for nonprofit organizations across the country thanks to the efforts of Swinerton employees. The Seattle-based division office raised more than any of the 12 total participating locations, and the Swinerton Foundation matched their contributions.

"I came to know about Little Bit through (Little Bit board of directors member) Wayne Miller with Mulvanny G2," stated Swinerton's Dave Worley, division manager. "I attended an event with Wayne two years ago and it was then that I was really enlightened about the wonderful work that Little Bit has been doing for years. I was extremely touched by Wayne's passion for Little Bit, so when our corporate office came up with a 2013 challenge celebrating our 125th year in business, I couldn't think of a better organization for which to give our challenge winnings."

Swinerton Project Executive Derek Jaschke continues, "The Swinerton Foundation is very proud to support Little Bit, an organization that truly enhances lives in such a unique way."

Subcontractors affiliated with Swinerton Builders also contributed to Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center, including Washington Commercial Painters, Smith Fire Systems, First Line Systems, Commercial Wall Systems, Division 9 Flooring, American Mechanical Corp, Milano Townhomes LLC, and SGS Glass.

Little Bit Executive Director Kathy Alm said: "Little Bit depends on the support of the community to provide services to our riders and patients with disabilities, and we are honored to have generous partners like Swinerton joining us in our mission of changing lives, one stride at a time."
