Retired U.S. Army Captain on Healing, Fly Fishing and the Power of Giving (CFC VIDEO)

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
