"Wild Hearts Equine Therapeutic Center was blessed to have the guidance and support of Mr. Dave Eldridge as we began our journey of helping people with physical, intellectual or emotional struggles back in 2014. His work as a Piedmont SCORE mentor and contribution to help people via the Tri County Entreprenurial Development Center was a game-changer for Wild Hearts. Dave was instrumental in pointing us to other professionals such as an attorney and an accountant, as well as connecting us with other, local non-profit organizations with whom to draw experience and collaborate.
Since our inception, Dave and Margaret have supported our efforts in the local community, spread awareness throughout Keowee Key and Keowee Key Community Partnership, attended our fundraising events, and helped fuel the passion that lives within. At Wild Hearts, we will be forever grateful for Dave's willingness to share his knowledge and experience."
