Donation for Veterans

We here at the Wall Tent Shop strive to support non-profit organizations that benefit veterans as often as we can.  Although we cannot fulfill every request, we do our best to assist numerous veterans in their outdoor pursuits each year.  Below is an example of a request we received and we were able to fulfill this year.

Foothills Anglers Coalition is a non-profit organization that helps seriously wounded veterans with their recovery from the Iraq & Afghanistan wars. Together with Horseshoe Bar Preserve we bring veterans together to teach them how to fly fish. Each veteran that attends is given boots , waders, rod and chest pack with all the tools and flies they will need to continue on with fly fishing. The veterans live on the river for 5 days where each veteran works with a guide to learn fly fishing. We are recognized by numerous government and organization for being extremely successful in help our veterans recover. We are looking for two 10' x 12' canvas wall tents for veterans to sleep in while they attend the event. We have a very limited budget so we are hoping you might be able to help us acquire these tents. The tents will be used from late spring through fall. There is possible rain but once summer is here the biggest problem is heat.

You are welcome to take a look at this short video of what we do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Be7TX61dT3c
