Hunters help feed hungry          Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

As director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, I would like to extend a thank-you to the sportsmen and other citizens who have taken an active role in the Illinois Sportsmen Against Hunger campaign. Because of their donations, more than 700,000 meals have been provided to needy individuals and families in Illinois since 1994.

There is still time for hunters to donate their deer or for private citizens to make a donation to cover the cost of processing one deer. Processing each deer costs $35 and results in an average of 50 pounds of ground meat donated to food pantries, food banks and soup kitchens in Illinois. In making a donation, you can earmark the specific location you would like to see benefit. Donations can be made to the Illinois Conservation Foundation and are tax-deductible.

Illinoisans have been extremely generous to the Illinois Sportsmen Against Hunger campaign in the past. This program is a wonderful example of how residents who have plenty are able to give to those who are in need. Again, a sincere thank-you.

Joel Brunsvold
Director, Illinois Department of Natural Resources
