Program Update.

The national office of Project Healing Waters has been funding us to get our program up and running. Now it is time for us to start raising funds to support our local program. We want to expand our list of available equipment for the new veterans who do not have any gear. We need waders, lanyards, accessories, tippet, six rod blanks and kits (Hook & Hackle donated five full kits, we need one more rod kit). We also intend to buy some PHW fly boxes and sell them locally to raise funds. Plus we need a few more hats for new veterans and volunteers to our program. Next year we would like to take some of our vets on a big trip – 4 days, 3 nights on the John Day. This is a big trip for us. We need to start raising funds for this trip.

We need your support to carry out these improvements and trips. We’re asking if you can donate $50, $75, $100 or more to support the Boise Project Healing Waters Program. Please sent your tax deductible donation to: Project Healing Waters PO Box 1971 Boise, Idaho 83701

We are 501 (C)3 non-profit organization, tax id provided by request.
