On behalf of the FSSA Directors, I’d like to wish you a very joyous and blessed Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.
I’m grateful for each member of The Florida Sport Shooting Association and our
affiliated clubs. Without you, our ability to promote shooting events
throughout the state, support our junior and women’s programs and support
individuals and teams at state and national level competitions would not be
possible. I can’t thank you enough.
Amendment Freedoms are unique and offer each one of us so many opportunities. Florida
is truly a great place to live and exercise our 2A Freedoms. In 2024, I hope we
all will take advantage of those freedoms…and in the upcoming election year, do
all we can to preserve and protect our most valued Second Amendment.
President, Florida Sport Shooting Association
NRA Celebrates Wild Game Meat Donation Month in November
This November, the National Rifle Association of America and its members will celebrate the first ever Wild Game Meat Donation Month to encourage all hunters to donate extra venison or other game meat to help provide meals for those in need. Giving and sharing are always in season, and November is the perfect time to do your part by donating to organizations who distribute high protein game meat to the less fortunate in your area.
''The NRA is excited to spearhead the first ever Wild Game Meat Donation Month,'' said Joseph P. De Bergalis, Jr., Executive Director of NRA General Operations. ''We implore other conservation groups to help celebrate the hardworking network of Hunters for the Hungry organizations around America by spreading the word and asking their members to donate legally harvest wild game meat to processors and food banks in their communities.''
Recently completed surveys and research funded by the NRA Hunters' Leadership Forum show that if you are a member of a conservation organization, you are three times more likely to donate to a Hunters for the Hungry organization. In 2022, many of the processors in the Hunters for the Hungry network did not receive enough donations to complete their missions. If you are fortunate to live in an area that has a plethora of whitetail tags, you can help game populations stay healthy by harvesting an extra doe and donating it to a network in your area.
