SENECA, SC – BASF’s site in Seneca recently donated $1,000 to the Wild Hearts Equine Therapeutic Center in Oconee County, and a team from BASF participated in the organization’s fundraising golf tournament.
The donation will be used to provide low or no-cost services for people with physical, intellectual or emotional challenges, including people dealing with trauma, behavioral or social issues, at-risk youth and victims of abuse, as well as active duty military personnel and veterans. Wild Hearts Equine Therapeutic Center, Inc. is a non-profit company that helps foster physical, emotional and behavioral growth by creating powerful connections between people and horses. They offer customized equine-assisted learning and therapeutic riding programs based on Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) practices, Trust-Based Relational Intervention principles and a philosophy of horsemanship rooted in softness.

This is the kind of programming that has the power to change lives, and we are dedicated to making Seneca the best community it can be.” said BASF Seneca Site Director Elba Lizardi.
