USS Foundation Helps Kids Find Fun, Friends and Fish


Newport Beach, CA – Twenty local youths joined USS Foundation volunteers onboard the “Western Pride” for an afternoon of deep-sea fishing.

The entire trip, organized as part of the Friends of Rollo charity charters, was sponsored and funded by the USS Foundation and USS employees, who contributed their own time and monetary donations.

For most of the adolescents who took part in the trip this was a unique opportunity, as the majority of them were raised in foster care.

USS Foundation President Brandon Sayegh and his brother, USS Foundation Children’s Ambassador Matthew Sayegh, were onboard to engage the youths and participate in the trip.

“We are very thankful to the USS Foundation and its volunteers for electing to sponsor this trip,” said Jim Holden, executive director for Friends of Rollo. “For our organization, the focus is providing a chance for underprivileged kids who might otherwise never experience the joy that comes with spending a day at sea.”

He went on to describe how, for a child, one opportunity can influence a lifetime of change.

“Many of these kids come from broken and neglected environments; the opportunity to take them on these trips is more than fulfilling.” He continued, “They get to learn all about fishing and general maritime procedures. The objective being, perhaps one child’s first time going fishing opens a whole new world of possibilities for them. We cannot give enough kudos to the USS Foundation for their participation in this worthwhile endeavor.”

The youths also took the opportunity to voice their satisfaction with the event and the volunteers who made it possible.

“My experience on the fishing trip was outstanding,” said Christopher Kelley, a youth who participated in the fishing expedition. “I loved just being out there on the ocean getting the chance to know what it’s like to go deep-sea fishing. I am truly grateful and appreciative for this trip. Hopefully I’ll be able to go on another one.”
