The nonprofit group Hunters Helping the Hungry will be one of a few organizations being featured on an upcoming segment of the CNN network, titled, "Giving in Focus: 12 Days of Goodness."
The series, produced by CNN writers and photojournalists, will chronicle ways people give their time and resources to help those in need.
Hunters Helping the Hungry provides venison for soup kitchens, shelters and emergency pantries in Hunterdon, Sussex and Warren counties through the Phillipsburg-based Northwest New Jersey Community Action Program food bank. Hunting season typically runs from September until Feb. 15. As part of the program, statewide hunters donate deer to a butcher certified by the program and inspected by the state's health department.
Since its inception in 1997, the organization has donated more than 219,000 pounds of venison, providing about 876,000 servings to feed hungry people in the community, said Les Giese, co-founder of Hunters Helping the Hungry and a township resident.
