Monetary donations needed for Hunters Helping the Hungry program

October 6, 2018

NORFOLK - The Hunters Helping the Hungry program with the Nebraska Game and Parks is in need of monetary donations for processing costs during the deer hunting season.

Coordinator Teresa Lombard says HHH contracts with processors, who prepare and package ground venison from the donated deer. Then charitable organizations pick up the venison and give it to those in need.

Lombard says every dollar donated helps a lot.

“A $10 donation is going to provide 22 meals for people in need. Even a $1 donation gets two meals to a family. If you want to make a $50 donation that amounts to 111 meals which is a huge impact for those in need.”

Lombard says Northeast Nebraskans can donate their deer to any one of the contracted processors in Humphrey, Lindsay, or Oakland.
