FTG’s Riverton crew is donating $500 to ABBA’s House, $500 to CATs Children’s Museum, $500 to Riverton’s Senior Center, and $500 to Eagles Hope Transitions. 

In the spirit of the holiday, Fremont Therapy Group invites you to join them in helping out organizations that help our communities. All of our non-profit organizations have been hit hard this year with funding deficits. Let’s rally together to support these entities that continue to help so many of our community members in their time of need. 

We encourage community members who are able to join us in helping these organizations.

The Central Wyoming Children’s Center for Art, Technology, & Science focuses on bringing children and adults together to discover, play and enrich their understanding/appreciation of the arts, technology, and sciences to promote an enhanced quality of life and a stronger central Wyoming community. 

The museum shut down in March due to COVID-19. They are still closed to the general public but have started opening for private events, birthday parties, etc. This is a great, safe way to get your friends and family together to experience CATS Children’s Museum. And it allows the museum to control the numbers of visitors as well as keep it sanitized. 

Local organizations and donations have helped keep CATS afloat during these hard times. Paragraph

How you can help:
1. Schedule a private party by calling 307-709-0360 or 307-840-1488
2. Mail donation to 120 S 3rd in Riverton
3. Follow them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/CentralWYCATS

“Thanks to help from the community, we will still be here when we have the safe and clear to open. We miss everyone. When we enter the museum it’s chilly and dark and quiet. It has been sad when we are used to a bright and noisy environment. We will be back. And for now, we are happy to welcome you for a private event,” says Tami Galitz.

It is Fremont Therapy Group’s goal to raise as much money and education as possible for these valuable organizations that help so many of our community members in need.
