Winchester Ammunition Continues Support Of Priority Youth Shooting Sports Programs
The Youth Shooting Sports Alliance (YSSA) – recently partnered with Winchester Ammunition to provide all of the rimfire and shotshell ammunition requested in support of the 2008 priority youth shooting sports programs.
Winchester Ammunition provided ammunition to the Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game Hunter Education Shooting Range Facility in Fairbanks, AK; the South Carolina 4-H Shooting Sports; the Mobile Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, in Mobile, AL; the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council, Boy Scouts of America, in Pleasant Hill, CA; and the Calhoun County 4-H Shooting Sports in Pittsboro, MS. These priority programs were among those recommended by an industry panel convened to review proposals submitted by youth organizations in response to last summer's National Youth Shooting Sports Program Needs Assessment conducted by YSSA.
Greg Kosteck, Director, Winchester Marketing said “Winchester Ammunition is proud to support the needs of successful youth programs that create measurable improvements in youth participation in the shooting sports.”
Winchester Ammunition has demonstrated a leadership role in support of youth shooting sports. The company made a groundbreaking $500,000 pledge in April, 2007 to permanently endow NRA's Marksmanship Qualification Program. Many youth program leaders consider this program an indispensable way to encourage young people to develop their shooting skills and grow their interest in the shooting sports. With this gift, Winchester became the exclusive, permanent sponsor of the program now known as the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program.
Winchester Ammunition also supports Ronald McDonald House Charities as the National Title Sponsor of the Kids & Clays Foundation.
