The van purchased by Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. (PHWFF) with the $30,000 grant provided by the Philip L. Graham Fund has been an incredible asset to the PHWFF programs in the PHWFF National Capital area. The PHWFF program that uses the van on a regular basis is the Marine Corps Base Quantico Program in Virginia. This passenger van has traveled up and down the beltway carrying wounded warriors and disabled veterans to and from fly fishing outings and other events. It has allowed us to focus our energies to work with participants and use our time more effectively and efficiently. Thanks to the Philip L. Graham Fund we have been able to plan and execute our local trips without having to ask for transportation assistance from other organizations or spend valuable resources and time securing vehicle rentals.
