Winchester Ammunition Pledges To Continue Supporting The Youth Shooting Sports Alliance
East Alton, IL - -(AmmoLand.com)- Winchester Ammunition recently pledged a charitable donation to the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance, showing its continued support and commitment to the younger generation of shooters.
“Winchester Ammunition has generously provided all of the shotgun target loads and rimfire target cartridges requested in support of our priority youth shooting sports programs,” said Steve Miller, executive director of YSSA.
“It is a pleasure to work in partnership with a company like Winchester Ammunition that shares our passion for recruiting and retaining youth in the shooting sports.”
Winchester Ammunition has been a long-time supporter of youth shooting safety and youth shooting sports programs. Winchester and the YSSA’s long-standing relationship began with the inception of the YSSA on July 25, 2007.
“It’s important to our company, our customers, our industry and future generations that we actively support organizations such as the YSSA,” said Dick Hammett, President of Winchester Ammunition.
“The YSSA meets the challenge of assessing priority programs and supporting those needs for continued success. We are proud to work with them to ensure the future of the shooting sports industry for many generations to come.”
The Youth Shooting Sports Alliance addresses two important challenges regarding the recruitment and retention of new shooters: identify and support the needs of successful and safe youth programs, and provide leadership in the development and promotion of family-friendly shooting range facilities to encourage continued participation in the shooting sports. Introducing young people to the pleasures and responsibilities of shooting is the YSSA’s most important task in ensuring that our shooting and hunting traditions remain intact.
