Click here to print this information
The Eastern Shore Chapter of the Hunters for the Hungry greatly needs deer donations during this final month of the deer hunting season. With the recent restriction of doe harvest days by the VDGIF, deer donations are down from the same period in the past. Now that the restriction has been removed for the remainder of the season, the local chapter is encouraging hunters to donate deer to the program. The deer hunting season closes on January 4, 2014.
Deer must be properly registered and field dressed only, not skinned out. The deer may be taken to the refrigerated trailers at The Food Bank in Tasley and BB Convenience on Lankford Hwy in Machipongo. Brent Powell also receives deer at his processing location in Wachapreague off Bradfords Neck Road. There is no cost to the hunter to donate the deer to the program.
The program is a non- profit organization and contributions are deductible as allowed by law. With 2013 closing, the chapter also encourages any final year donations to pay for the processing costs for the deer. Donations, made out to Hunters for the Hungry may be sent to Worth Saunders, chapter director, at PO BOX 1702, Parksley VA 23421.
