During the Combined Federal Campaign each fall, federal employees are encouraged to make donations to approved non-profit organizations. This is the largest employee giving campaign in the world. If you are a federal employee, you can pledge an amount to be withheld regularly from your pay beginning in January of each year or make a one-time gift. In order to make a donation to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, you must use our CFC code #82526

Alvin Shell, a retired U.S. Army Captain and current federal employee, shares his story on behalf of the CFC.  Alvin is a 100% disabled veteran that sustained multiple injuries in 2004 while rescuing a fellow soldier during an ambush in Iraq.  He has always had a love for the outdoors but only fell in love with fly fishing three years ago during a trip to Idaho. Alvin later joined the Ft Belvoir program of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing which fostered a better understanding of the sport and the addiction was born. Watch this powerful video below.

For more information, ask the CFC representative at your agency for a copy of the CFC pamphlet that is available in the fall. The Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing CFC code is #82526
