Thanks to Gulfstream Employees
Gulfstream chose F.E.T.C., one of 12 non-profit agencies who applied to United Way HandsOn Savannah, for several reasons.
"We loved the fact that there were kids involved and horses and veterans that serve our country and the fact that it was in Effingham Co. where so many of our employees live," said TimSteinhauser, Gulfstream's director of Customer Relations.
Steinhauser said he and other Gulfstream leaders took a hard look at where the company could best serve their community. The F.E.T.C. project was deemed as the best fit.

FETC In the News
Faith Equestrian has been in the news a great deal lately. WSAV, WJCL and WTOC came out to the center to do stories on the Gulfstream employees who are helping us do some rennovations through the United Way HandsOn Savannah, a program that connects service to opportunity in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty Counties. We were also featured on WJCL about the Sensory Trail and how we assist children with autism.
SavannahNow/EffinghamNow included a story about our Special Olympic athletes who participated in the 2013 State Horse Show in Gainseville, GA.
