We are happy to introduce a wonderful organization called C.A.S.T. for Kids for those who are not familiar. This program is one for children with special needs. The events that this organization puts together are designed to create adaptive environments where children, ages 5-17 and their parent or guardian, can share a day of fun fishing on the water that they may not have otherwise been able to experience.

We have donated about $500 to sponsor some of these valuable events. The C.A.S.T. for Kids events are held around the country, every year. At the end of the month, C.A.S.T. is holding a day of fishing at Lake Folsom.  The event will be held on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 and will provide children with disabilities the chance to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing.

Looking for ways to help? This organization welcomes volunteers and donors alike!

You can become a fundraiser, support events in your area, sponsor a child, be an event sponsor, be a future of C.A.S.T. or donate any amount you like by visiting their website.

From the C.A.S.T. for Kids’ website:

Participants are hosted at a local lake, or body of water, supplied with a fishing rod & reel, t-shirt, hat, and tackle box, partnered with an experienced volunteer angler and escorted onto a boat where, with the supervision of a parent or guardian, they are shown proper fishing techniques and receive natural resources education.  Participants and volunteers all then return from their morning fishing excursion to a BBQ lunch and an awards ceremony.

This is a great opportunity to be involved in a very unique organization that creates positive experiences in children’s lives. We encourage anyone in the community, including other businesses like our own, to get involved and to give back in any way they can.
