Hunters Encouraged to Share Their Harvest to Help Pennsylvanians in Need, Says Helm
11/20/2012
HARRISBURG – Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin) is encouraging Pennsylvania hunters and sportsmen to consider participating in the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) program, which provides donations of venison to local food banks, soup kitchens and families in need.

Started in 1991, HSH now helps to deliver almost 200,000 meals to food banks, churches and social services feeding programs.

As part of the program, hunters are encouraged to take a deer to a participating meat processor and identify how much of their deer meat to donate to HSH.

If an individual is donating an entire deer, he or she is asked to make a $15 tax-deductible co-pay, and HSH will cover the remaining processing fees. However, a hunter can cover the entire costs of the processing, which is also tax deductible.

Pennsylvania’s HSH program is recognized as one of the most successful among similar programs in about 40 states.

To learn more about the program and obtain a list of participating meat processors and county coordinators, visit www.SueHelm.net.
