Fellow fly fishermen,
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, as many of you know, helps disabled veterans through teaching them fly tying, fly fishing skills, and taking them on the water. Our chapter in Spokane is very active and is helping hundreds of men and women to heal some of the wounds they have, not just physical, but emotional as well. Seeing the joy they exude when they have had a successful day on the water is worth our efforts. To see the effect of PHWFF go to www.projecthealingwaters.org. We receive little funding and many of our vets cannot afford the equipment for fly fishing or fly tying. If you have any fly tying materials or tools, usable rods, reels, lines, fly boxes, nets, etc. and are willing to donate them to Project Healing Waters, they will be received with a grateful “Thank you.”
To donate the equipment, please send it to: Lt. Colonel Robert Kowal 11310 N. Lancelot Drive, Spokane, WA 99218.
Project Healing Waters Fishing, Inc., is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible including the cost of shipping. If you include your e-mail, you will receive a donation statement you complete by putting in the items, mailing cost and total value. If you don’t have equipment to donate but would like to make a financial donation, go to https://goo.gl/ljjPWD. This is the national organization. Make a note that the donation is to go to the Spokane, Washington, Project Healing Waters chapter.
If you live within a days drive of Spokane and would like to take some veterans fishing on your boat, or favorite river, please contact Fred Timms at firstname.lastname@example.org, coordinator for Project Healing Waters. The trips are providing the veterans a wonderful opportunity to grow through fly fishing
You will be part of a mission to help our veterans heal. Thank you for your efforts and donations that will make a difference in the lives of veterans.
Lt. Col. USAF, Retired.
