How often do you take advantage of an opportunity to do something good?

The generosity of several businesses recently led to the erection of a new hay barn for a nonprofit organization that focuses on helping individuals grow and develop through recreational activities with horses. American Building Components donated the metal walls and roofing for the project at Cassidy’s Cause in Paducah, Kentucky.

Cassidy’s Cause is a nonprofit organization in Paducah, focused on the goal of helping individuals grow and develop through recreational interaction with horses. Individuals with disabilities have an opportunity to achieve that growth and development through therapeutic, educational and recreational activities, while on a horse.

A new hay barn, measuring 40 by 40 feet and 14 feet to the eaves, built to match the adjacent storage building. More importantly, unlike the previous hay storage facility, it’s onsite. ABC’s 29-gauge panels were used for the roofing and wall panels on the project. 

Donors on the project included ABC Metal of Frankfort, Kentucky, Atlas Door of Paducah, Atlas Metal of Paducah, Davis Brothers Farms of Cunningham, Kentucky, Free State Lumber Company of Haleyville, Alabama, Freedom Construction of Cunningham, Graceland Properties of Cunningham, Great Southern Wood Preserving of Walland, Tenn., Kentucky Colonels Headquarters of Louisville and MIDCO Building Products of Mayfield, Kentucky.

Cassidy’s Cause depends heavily on donations and fund-raisers to keep the state-of-the-art facility on 22 acres of groomed pastures up and running. The new hay barn saves volunteers from having to load, haul and unload hay from the former hay storage facility, a few miles away.
