Henry Repeating Arms' 25th anniversary pledge to donate $1,000,000 is in its final month! Since June 2022, the legendary gun manufacturer's charitable Guns for Great Causes program has donated over $725,000. The recipients comprise a wide variety of categories, including families battling pediatric cancer, military veterans, law enforcement, first responders, wildlife conservation, firearms safety education and 2nd Amendment advocacy. The most recent, however, is the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance (YSSA), to the tune of $25,000. Henry CEO & Founder Anthony Imperato presented the check to YSSA Executive Director Cyndi Flannigan at Guns Unlimited in Omaha, Nebraska, a “Top 100” Henry dealer.
YSSA faces the challenge of introducing new people to shooting sports and hunting by identifying and supporting the needs of the country’s most successful youth programs with safe, reliable equipment. Founded in 2007, the organization has become a distribution hub for equipment donated by industry partners, dispersing firearms, targets, and safety equipment nationwide to the programs with the greatest need or the highest impact.
“Preserving and promoting America’s shooting sports traditions and supporting the organizations that share this goal is one of the core tenets of our Guns for Great Causes program. YSSA is incredibly effective at advancing the programs that accomplish these goals,” said Imperato. “The future of shooting sports is in good hands with YSSA, and I am proud to include them on our roster of partners.”
