The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To provide disabled and disadvantaged youth & warriors inclusion in quality outdoor recreation through the sports of fishing & boating.
The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation was formed in 1991 by a group of dedicated fisherman to join volunteers who love to fish with youth who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience fishing and boating. Since its inception, the program has served over 100,000 children in communities from coast to coast and everywhere in between.
We currently host between 60 to 70 events each year and are expanding our reach everyday. The C.A.S.T. for Kids program has a strong emphasis on providing adaptive means who fishing and boating for children with a wide range of disabilities. We provide all the necessary means for each child to be successful including fish equipment, life jackets and all terminal tackle. Our new program, Take a Warrior Fishing, expands that same mission to our wounded warriors.
