the Franklin County 4-H Association, $8,400 to get the archery program up and

as 4H adult volunteers, received their certification in archery education and put
the donation to good use by securing the necessary equipment to teach youth valuable

“This program would not be as successful without the archery
equipment donated to us from the Friends of NRA and the NRA Foundation, and we’re
thankful,” said Michelle Huber, manager of the extension office.

tax-deductible contributions in support of a wide range of firearm-related
public interest activities intended to defend and foster the Second Amendment
rights of all law-abiding Americans. These activities are designed to promote
firearms and hunting safety, to enhance marksmanship skills of those
participating in the shooting sports, and to educate the general public about
firearms in their historic, technological and artistic context.
