ATTENTION HFTH SUPPORTERS!
As many of you know 2020 has been a challenge for us, We’ve had to re-schedule some events and cancel others! BUT our program is so very blessed in so many ways! ESPECIALLY through the wonderful people who are a part of what we do! As you saw recently we had to cancel our Hunters for the Hungry Northern Virginia Sportsmans Banquet scheduled for July 18th! HOWEVER, the precious folks who make up that banquet committee, our NOVA HftH Team decided to pursue a GoFundMe page to help with the revenues lost by this cancellation and to help us go beyond the banquet proceeds in helping feed those in need! We not only want to be able to resume accepting deer now but need to have the funding in place for the upcoming hunting seasons! WOULD YOU HELP THEM OUT IN REACHING THEIR GOAL FOR THE HUNTERS FOR THE HUNGRY PROGRAM?

We pray this finds you and your families safe and healthy as we have moved into Phase III of the COVID 19! We wish everyone many special blessings during this time and always!
We do regret to inform you that the following events have been cancelled for July and August:
Hunters for the Hungry Northern Virginia Sportsmans Banquet scheduled for July 18th, Park West Lions CLub, Manassas, VA
(This event may possibly be re-scheduled to October 24th, look for future announcements)
Hunters for the Hungry Night with the Lynchburg Hillcats scheduled for Thursday August 20th at the Bank of the James Stadium, Lynchburg
(We hope to be blessed with this event next season)
Our Fundraising events typically raise about 18% of our annual budget! As we continue to either try and re-schedule events or are having to cancel them would you please consider a financial gift to our feeding program to help with these losses. With the hunting seasons only a few months away we truly need your help to make sure we have the funds in place to accept deer during this critical time!
You can donate here by clicking on the jumping deer!
During this challenging time of COVID 19 our program, our communities, our Nation, and world are finding out we are stronger together! We pray for safety and health for all! For our program there has been a “two edged sword” which we have been working to balance!
What many may not realize is that we have the opportunity to accept deer at more times during a year than just hunting seasons! While most of Virginia’s deer seasons end the 1st Saturday in January, there are some that run through April in a few areas of the state. In addition to these deer more are made available through culling efforts in municipalities and private associations from February through the first of April then comes crop damage and other herd control efforts which begin as early as May and run until the early seasons in September! The great thing about having the ability to accept these deer is that it affords us the chance to provide lean high protein red meat to foodbanks and other feeding programs almost year round!
However, with the COVID 19 situation we found a huge demand for the venison with so many out of work and struggling for food while on the other side we have been challenged in receiving the funding to be able to accept these deer! As of March 17, 2020 we had to suspend taking any additional deer statewide due to funding concerns. While we have been blessed with response to our appeals and with support from various Foundations we ask that if you have been so blessed PLEASE CONSIDER A FINANCIAL GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT IN SUPPORT OF OUR FEEDING EFFORTS!
FOR A GIFT OF $20.00 WE CAN PROVIDE 64 SERVINGS TO A MAN, WOMAN, OR CHILD STRUGGLING WITH HUNGER! You can make a one time gift or set up a month recurring gift of any amount! These dollars help us to help those in need throughout our state NOW and during the upcoming fall seasons! For a gift of $50 we can process an entire deer, providing an average of 40 pounds of nutritious food!
YOU CAN DONATE BY CLICKING ON THE JUMPING DEER BELOW OR SEE OUR DONATE TAB ON OUR MENU! Would you help us touch a life by giving them something to eat?
OUR DEEPEST AND MOST HEART FELT THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO US DURING THIS CHALLENGING TIME YOUR GIFTS, PURCHASING OF OUR RAFFLE TICKETS, AND/OR BUYING OUR MERCHANDISE! AND THE FOUNDATIONS AND ORGANIZATIONS WHO HAVE RESPONDED TO OUR NEEDS! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
HUNTERS FOR THE HUNGRY NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!!
MARCH 17, 2020
The Hunters for the Hungry program sends all indivduals and families who make up our communities, our Commonwealth, our Nation, and our World our best wishes during this time of anxiety and uncertainty with regards to the COVID – 19 virus! We remind you to look through all the stuff going on and let God reveal to you his special and wonderful blessings!
We thank you all for the precious and wonderful support you give to our feeding program! Because of you our total pounds for the 2019 season was 256,586. This amount of venison equates to over 128 tons, over 1 MILLION quarter pound servings going to men, women, and children struggling with hunger! Your support means so much to us but more so to those whose life you touch!
HOWEVER, at this time we have had a number of bills come in for deer that were processed the later part of the season, through the extended Virginia season in the Northern Virginia area, by kill permits, and through herd reduction measures by a number of cities and towns. WITH THESE AND OUR OTHER BILLS OUR FUNDS ARE AT A VERY LOW AND CRITICAL LEVEL AT THIS TIME!
We could use your financial support to help us get through this critical time!
