Riders of Hope is honored to have so many friends who believe in us and share our vision. There are no words to describe the impact that each of these individuals has had on our organization and, in turn, on each and every life that we touch.  During the difficult times of starting from scratch, these individuals have shared their knowledge and wisdom, wealth, food, time, dedication, experiences and much more. 

In the near future, we will be featuring a story of “The Riders of Hope Friend of the Month,” sharing the unique contribution story of one of our supporters.  These gems of generosity are special and should not remain solely in our hearts.  For now, here is a list of almost all of them.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
