Sunday, October 23: Happy’s Farm

Happy’s Farm is a Rowan County non-profit that provides affordable tutoring, after school care, and behavioral coaching to young people in a western setting. Their mission is to instill in children that (1) they are loved; (2) they are important; and (3) they can do almost anything if they apply themselves.

Location: 985 Parks Road, Salisbury, NC 28146.

Time: 2 – 5 pm, followed by a hot dog supper, provided by the Farm. All materials provided.

Projects include:

  • Barn Expansion to utilize both sides for the Reading to Barnyard Animals Program. Work includes installing boards and insulation on the middle wall separating the two rooms.
  • Painting the facility’s military train that has been rebuilt. This is a favorite activity for the children.
  • Volunteers can bake cupcakes (on-site) and wrap for freezing, so they can be used later as a cake decorating activity for the children.
  • Younger children could organize the play dishes, food, games, etc. in the Western theme play buildings.
