The holidays are going to be so much brighter for dozens of Colorado families thanks to Chris Dorsey, host of "Sporting Classics with Chris Dorsey," the world's most widely distributed outdoor program.
Dorsey's publishing powerhouse recently took to social media to announce his generous and meaningful donation of more than 100 pounds of elk meat to the River Deep Foundation. Soon, we're going to distribute the meat to families we serve through Craig Hospital's Operation TBI Freedom program. Here's how Dorsey explained his gift:
"Joining our partners at Safari Club International in proudly celebrating this November as the first ever 'Wild Game Meat Donation Month.' This month-long celebration encourages hunters to donate legally harvested game meat and commemorates the important role that sportsmen and women play in serving underprivileged communities. Sharing our good fortune is always in season.
"I am personally donating my meat to the River Deep Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping military veterans who have experienced physical, mental or psychological trauma. The River Deep Foundation provides recreational outings and experiences along with a wealth of resources to veterans so they can focus on healing and improve both their outlook and quality of life.
"Every state has different rules and regulations for donations, so please find a worthy cause that you believe in, and check with your local drop off location in advance."
The entire River Deep Foundation leadership team is deeply grateful to Dorsey for this generous donation -- and we encourage everyone to learn more about his hunting and fishing adventures around the world, which emphasize the sportsman's role in advocating for, and funding, sustainable conservation models.
