The Brandywine Horse Shows has selected Moorcroft Conservation Foundation and the Chester County Food Bank as beneficiaries the 2021 shows.
Moorcroft Conservation Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by well-known equestrian Charlie Moorcroft, introduces children and adults to important conservation issues. This unique foundation was established in November 2020 with the mission of introducing children and adults to global conservation issues, inspiring them to make a difference and raise funds to support collaborative organizations. Moorcroft will use his collection of critically endangered and protected species of animals and other related exhibits to provide an intimate and hands-on experience. The foundation will also offer field trips to other local facilities, informational videos, related literature, and occasional guest speakers to further educate their visitors on local, national, and global conservation issues.
The Chester County Food Bank was formed in 2009 to address the county's escalating hunger problem with the primary goal to have a viable, sustainable organization that secures, manages, and distributes food to those in need. Today, they are the central hunger relief organization serving more than 120 partner agencies in Chester County, PA. Their network of food cupboards, hot meal sites, shelters, and other social service organizations distribute over 3 million pounds to their neighbors with limited or uncertain access to adequate food.
