Fishing supplies donation helps veterans enjoy more time outdoors

Veterans at NLR home can enjoy more time outdoors thanks to a donation of fishing supplies.

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The new veterans home in North Little Rock collected fishing supplies for its tenants so they can enjoy summertime outdoors.

June Matheny, one of the organizers said, “I just think it’s a fun activity. I mean some of the guys probably grew up fishing and why not still do it? Just because you have to move into a home, whatever the reason, doesn’t mean you give up everything.”

The purpose was to help the homes members get out to socialize and catch some fish.
Items collected include fishing poles, lures, tackle boxes, bait and much more.

The new North Little Rock Veterans home located on John Ashley Drive has 3 ponds. The home even has a cart that picks up veterans who can’t walk so they can go to the bank and fish.
