William from Queens, NY

I want to help fellow veterans by starting a social nonprofit. I just need supplies!

I work as an ironworker and I'm striving to pick up a cause. I want to prevent veteran suicide by arranging fishing trips; I need fishing supplies!

My need and situation

I am a 31yr old Navy Veteran. I am currently working as an ironworker in NYC. During my spare time I am doing a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit.

My goals are to assist veterans and prevent veteran suicide. Social interaction between veterans saves lives. Main focus is going to be organizing shark & tuna fishing trips for combat veterans.

I need $450.00 for supplies. To start buying equipment heavy duty hooks, line, leaders and rods. To hopefully be started by next summer.

Meeting this need will help me because this year I have dedicated my time to organizing all the paperwork needed. I am trying to gain support and supplies. Thank you for all your time.
