Thanks to a grant from the NRA Foundation Friends of NRA program, the Woods County 4-H shooting sports program received $ 2,975.64 to purchase needed supplies to assist in providing educational information on the use of firearms and competition resources.

"We are very excited about the Woods County 4-H shooting sports program," said Dustin Rankin, Woods County 4-H shooting sports volunteer leader, "and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in our community that will benefit our youth."

The grant funds were used by the Woods County 4-H shooting sports program to provide all interested 4-H youth the opportunity to participate in the program regardless of their economic situation. These funds were utilized to supply ammunition, targets, archery equipment and support supplies for the entire shooting sports program. This support allowed youth to increase their participation in the overall shooting sports program.
