Shane_O posted a topic in Main ForumI know some states have certain charities/food banks that seized fish from the DEM/DEEP are donated to, but are there organizations that accept donations directly from recreational anglers? I’d imagine there may be health/safety regulation hurdles. I bring this up because I’ve already kept enough eaters to give some to friends and family who really appreciate it and keep enough for myself. It’s all catch and release for me now. However, I’ve had several keepers get a hook in the gills, through the head, etc. which probably wouldn’t make it. When I know they won’t and they’re over 28 I’ll obviously keep it. But it would be nice to be able to donate to a local charity or soup kitchen where it will be used fresh for a good cause. Maybe local church-run operations?
Hi everyone I am hosting an event for CAST for Kids. CAST is an organization that lets disabled children go out and enjoy a great day of fishing. I am posting here because I am looking for volunteers or participants. If you know anybody who could participate or volunteer let them know about this event. It is a great cause and hope i get a a good response. I have put a brief description below of the event. Thanks to all in advance. I am excited to be hosting a first of its kind fishing event for special needs children on September 18 at the Harlem Meer in Central Park, NYC. I am co-sponsoring this event with Cast for Kids. My goal for this event is to give these children the chance to enjoy fishing as much as I do! Are you a fisherman? Volunteer to be a fishing buddy for a participating child. Would you like to volunteer? Other volunteers are needed to register children and their families, organize the picnic and snacks, and run our awards ceremony to close out the day. Willing to sponsor? Your dollars or in-kind donations will provide fishing equipment, food, award plaques, and other necessities to make the event a success for the children. I hope you will join me as a volunteer and / or sponsor. Please visit the link below to make a donation, register to volunteer, or to register a child to participate: http://castforkids.org/event/harlemmeercentralpark The day will begin with volunteers arriving at 7:30am. Children and their parents arrive at 8:30am. The children will pre-register and will receive a C.A.S.T. t-shirt and hat, rod and reel and tackle box to keep as their own. Breakfast will be served before they are paired, along with a parent or guardian, with an experienced fisherman and head out around the Meer for 3 hours of fishing. Lunch for all and an awards ceremony will follow where each child is presented with a plaque as a memento of this very special day If you know anyone who may be interested in participating in any way please share my email. Cast for Kids is special to me because it provides participating children the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and catch the special thrill of fishing.
