Deer hunters in Chattooga County did not let those shot deer go to waste this year.
Enough deer were collected this hunting season to feed 306 families, according to Hunters Ending Hunger campaign.
This exciting new initiative was created as a result of out-of-the-box thinking by Allison Agnew, Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition. Collaborations with Helping Hands Ending Hunger, the Chattooga County schools, Family Connections, Live Healthy Chattooga, and Weesner’s Wild Game Processing, made it a reality.
“Hunters Ending Hunger is pleased to be able to cover the processing costs. Join us in bringing quality protein to the tables of those in your community that need a helping hand.
“Donating is easy! Just take your legally harvested deer to Weesner’s, located at 4334 SR 114, Lyerly, and complete the donation form. Once the meat is processed, delicious ground meat and sausage will be delivered to our local Helping Hands school chapters for distribution to students and families in need.
“Donations for meat processing will be accepted as part of the initiative. As a 501c3 public charity, Helping Hands Ending Hunger can provide a tax letter for donors,” according to Live Healthy Chattooga’s Facebook page.
Having worked with Helping Hands Ending Hunger in Chattooga County schools, Ms. Agnew realized there remains a significant need – quality meat and protein – for families in our neighborhoods. She shared her idea with Carla Harward, CEO of Helping Hands Ending Hunger, and it quickly took shape.
Together, Ms. Agnew and Mrs. Harward approached Larry Weesner, Weesner Wild Game Processing, with their idea, and he generously committed to giving a helping hand.
