Part • ner (noun) / pärt-ner/ One that shares
Thank you to our nonprofit partners for allowing us to share experiences with the children they serve.
On River Time is a nonprofit that supports other nonprofits by supplying funds to provide a fly-fishing trip to the abused and neglected children that are being served through established organizations. The partner organizations that we work with are instrumental in helping to identify the children who will benefit most from this type of experience. They work closely with us in the selection and coordination process and in many cases accompany children on the trips. We thank them for their help.
