Elmore County 4-H receives grant for shooting program
University of Idaho Extension Elmore County’s 4-H Program continues to prosper thanks to the generosity of the Elmore County Friends of NRA Chapter, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization focused on raising money for the future of shooting sports programs. The Friends of NRA provided two grants to assist in the purchase of much needed archery equipment to get shooting sports off the ground in Elmore County. The grants, totaling nearly $5,500, were used to acquire both standard and 3-D archery targets, as well as brand new bow sets. The bow sets have allowed several 4-H members the opportunity to participate in the archery program where financial constraints would have otherwise prevented their participation. Archery has become an extremely popular shooting sports program for 4-H youth at the Elmore County Fair.
