Area Friends of NRA make donation to local Boy Scout pack

The Western Reserve Friends of NRA was able to help Boy Scout Troop 75, St. Mary's of the Assumption in Mentor.

This Scouting group was able to purchase a left hand Anschutz target rifle to be used in their youth shooter program.

The WRFNRA is one of 1100 local committees across the United States Counties. Every year in May, they sponsor a fund raiser.

Fifty percent of the proceeds go back into the community for projects and programs that promote firearms and hunting safety, marksmanship skills, and educate the general public about firearms in their historic, technological, and artistic context; or contribute to the general well-being of the public at large.

The other fifty-percent goes into national programs for youths and others.
