H&H Shooting Sports has indicated that a number of companies have joined together to provide donations and needed supplies for the Tornado Relief effort to aid victims throughout central Oklahoma.
Miles Hall, Founder and President of H&H, said, “We are completely humbled at the outpouring of support from the industry. Smith & Wesson was the first to step up and offer whatever they could to help, so we suggested the wonderful folks at the Oklahoma City Salvation Army. From there, we’ve had other companies call us, including Taurus, Sig Sauer, and many fellow Firearm Dealers from all over the country.”
Smith & Wesson has made a $10,000 donation to the Oklahoma City Salvation Army at the request of H&H. Several other manufactures have made donations of cash and merchandise, which the sale of will have all the procedes donated to the relief effort. Many firearm retailer have also decided to help out, Sprague’s Sports in Yuma, Arizona and Black Wing Shooting Center in Delaware, Ohio both announced that they will hold a Benefit Gun Raffle,
Donations from industry efforts will provide much needed relief for survivors and first responders who deal directly with the aftermath of the deadly tornadoes that struck central Oklahoma on Monday, May 19th and 20th. Through the oncoming weeks and months, donations received will be used to fund pivotal activities as residents begin the tedious measures of rebuilding communities and coping with personal loss.
H&H is also conducting what will be called the ‘Second Wave’ food drive, and will be accepting food donations at the 4U Cafe, with the goal being to pack 1000 sack lunches and take them to displaced people and to the volunteers working on the scene both in the Shawnee and Moore areas
