Food Bank donation
GASSAWAY, W.Va. -- The Mountaineer Food Bank received a $70,000 donation from the 2012 One Shot Deer Hunt event for Hunters Helping the Hungry.
The sixth annual Governor's One Shot Deer Hunt was held in October. The money will go to the Hunters Helping the Hungry program, administered by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, to distribute venison to needy families across the state through the Mountaineer Food Bank and other agencies.
In addition to the funds donated through the Governor's One Shot Deer Hunt, $25,000 was donated by Dominion Energy.
Under the program, individuals and businesses donate money for the opportunity to participate in guided antlerless deer hunts on private property near Stonewall Resort State Park in Lewis County. All venison from the hunt, along with profits from the sponsorships, goes to HHH program. More information about the HHH program is available at wvdnr.gov/Hunting/HHH.shtm.
