DALLAS – Nov. 5, 2015 - ACTIVE Network® the largest global marketplace for activities and events, and the industry’s leading provider of data solutions, today announced it would donate a portion of each online hunting license purchase through the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency website operated by ACTIVE, up to $15,000, to Hunters for the Hungry . The Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s Hunters for the Hungry program provides healthy, much-needed protein to Tennessee’s citizens in need. Since 1996, Hunters for the Hungry has provided more than four million meals to Tennessee residents.
For any hunting license purchased online at https://www.tn.gov/twra/article/license-to-feed from November 1, 2015 through January 15, 2016, $1.50 will be donated to Hunters for the Hungry by ACTIVE until a total of $15,000.00 has been donated. A $1.00 donation helps fund three full meals. Based on last year’s online license sales, ACTIVE will reach its goal of donating $15,000 to Hunters for the Hungry, helping to fund 45,000 meals, and feeding more than 11,000 families of four.
“ACTIVE is proud to connect our rapidly growing online community to such a great cause - where hunters can do what they love while enabling ACTIVE to give back to the community on their behalf,” said Gary Evans, general manager, outdoors, for ACTIVE Network. “ACTIVE has served as the licensing system of record for the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency for over 15 years. This is one way ACTIVE gives back to the communities we serve, and we believe it is an important way to connect with Tennesseans in need during the holiday season.”
About Hunters for the Hungry
Hunters for the Hungry program connects white-tailed deer hunters with local wild game processors who prepare and package donated venison for either free or at a reduced price to the hunter. The venison is then provided to area food banks and soup kitchens and is often the main source of fresh protein for hunger relief organizations.
