Indiana: Sportsman’s Benevolence Fund pins available at Fish & Wildlife Areas

Hunters and trappers can help fellow Hoosiers put food on the
table by purchasing Sportsman’s Benevolence fund collector series
pins, now available at DNR Fish & Wildlife Areas. Each
collector series set costs $10 and contains four pins: 2008, 2009,
2010 and an unmarked pin. Proceeds from the collector pins help
organizations distribute venison to food banks in need of meat
across Indiana.

One such organization is Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry,
which has 14 chapters statewide. FHFH processed 1,200 deer
statewide last year, providing more than 152,600 meals. To find a
participating deer processor in Indiana and donate venison to feed
the hungry, visit www.fhthf.org.

For every $50 raised, more than 200 meals can be provided to the
hungry.

The SBF collector series pins are now available at the following
Fish & Wildlife Areas:

– Atterbury, Crosley, Glendale, Sugar Ridge, Wilbur Wright,
LaSalle, Jasper-Pulaski, Kankakee, Kingsbury, Pigeon River, Roush,
Winamac, Willow Slough and Tri-County
