On Friday, Nov. 1, UA Cossatot provided lunch for the participants of the 2019 Disabled Youth Hunt. This event took place at the Starch Creek Hunting Club, where the college served grilled hamburgers and dessert.
In 2004, Little River County Judge, Mike Cranford founded the Southern Sportsmen Foundation. In 2008, the foundation began an annual deer hunt for disabled youth.
The primary objective of this event is to take people with severe mobility impairments or life-threating illnesses on hunting trips. The Southern Sportsmen Foundation’s mission involves providing more quality outdoor and hunting opportunities to everyone.
The college prepared a lunch for everyone present and also provided the participants with a backpack and other UA Cossatot merchandise. UA Cossatot has been involved with the Disabled Youth Hunt for the past 16 years and plans to continue that in 2020.
