BASSFIELD, MS (WDAM) -

The ARC spent a weekend on a trip out in the country in Bassfield. The organization is a non-profit that supports people with specials needs.

The kids got to go swimming, horseback riding and went on a hayride.

Volunteer Eric Cooper said he enjoys helping out at the ranch and working with the kids.

“Honestly, it kind of brings a tear to your eye, a smile on your face,” Cooper said.

Trips like these are special for people at the ARC because they get to participate in fun activities that they aren't usually able to.

However, these trips are also fun for parents because they get to see their kids smile and enjoy the outdoors.

 “This is just an opportunity for him from when we have people around that they can assist him to where we can give him the same opportunities that everyone else has as well,” said ARC Assistant Director Christie Moss.

Chuck Holland enjoys hosting these events at his farm because he likes making a difference in the community. 

“They lighten up, brighten up and it makes you realize how blessed you are,”Holland said. “They love it and we love it to.”
