Equine-Assisted Therapy Gets Patch Reader Support

Thank you, Patch readers, for nominating a local charity in our community for Patch's "Click & Claim for Charity" contest. We're pleased to announce that Equine-Assisted Therapy was nominated to represent Eureka-Wildwood Patch.

Here's how the contest works. If you operate a business, park, religious entity, school or store within Eureka-Wildwood Patch, go online now and claim your listing in the Patch directory—if you haven't already done so . If Eureka-Wildwood Patch has the most claimed listings among the participating Patch sites between March 7 and April 8, in will win an advertising campaign on Patch worth up to $3,500, to spread the word about the good works they do in the community.

You can read more details here: 

Claiming a listing is free and easy. Here's how to do it:

  1. Pull up the Eureka-Wildwood Patch site. If you're already a user, make sure you sign in (log in) first.
  2. Click on the "Places" tab at the top of the Home page.
  3. Search for your business/organization, and click on it.
  4. Scroll halfway down the page to where it says, "Do you own or manage this location? Claim it!" Click on "Claim It."
  5. Complete the four-question form providing all necessary information to expedite your claim. You must be signed in to the site to interact with it. If you haven't ever done that, simply "sign up" or "join" the site. It's a free, one-time step.

We want to make sure it's really you claiming the listing, so please allow three to five business days for us to evaluate and approve your claim. You will be notified by email once it's approved.
