LINCOLN, Neb. – Hunters can make a cash donation to the Hunters Helping the Hungry (HHH) program when they purchase their 2018 deer permit.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission seeks cash donations to HHH so it can continue to feed Nebraskans in need by providing ground venison. Each dollar donated provides two meals of ground venison.
HHH is funded entirely by tax-deductible cash donations from hunters, businesses and individuals. HHH contracts with processors, who prepare and package ground venison from donated deer. Charitable organizations then pick up and distribute venison to Nebraskans.
Hunters who offer deer for donation pay no processing fee if it is accepted. But HHH might have to accept fewer deer because funds are lower, reducing the number of meals provided to Nebraskans in need.
