Review for C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation, Renton, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is about grown men taking handicapped children out in their boats and teaching them how to fish. The questions is. Who's getting the most out of this experience? The child or that OL Fisherman!You have to attend a CAST event! It could change your life. It did mine. I married one of those "OL Fisherman"!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Making a special day for a kid.When all the kids are out on the lake, I love to look over and see the wheelchairs and walkers coralled over by the tents.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Loving and compassionate people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Give every handicapped Child in the world a chance to Catch A Special Trill. This experience gives children a felling of freedom and it levels the playing field... Anyone can fish......

Ways to make it better...

Couldn't have been better. The weather always cooperates, even in Oregon!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finicial. This is the first year we (Forest Grove OR) are on our own. The Buruea of Reclamation dropped us. They provided funding and man power.

One thing I'd also say is that...

When children come back every year, and then they aren't there this year...... It breaks my heart.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & Anything that's needed....
