Henry Repeating Arms is pleased to announce a $25,000 donation to the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance (YSSA) in solidarity with their mission to keep the heritage of shooting sports alive. Henry CEO & Founder Anthony Imperato presented the check to YSSA Executive Director Cyndi Flannigan at Guns Unlimited in Omaha, Nebraska, a “Top 100” Henry dealer.
“Preserving and promoting America’s shooting sports traditions and supporting the organizations that share this goal is one of the core tenants of our Guns for Great Causes program. YSSA is incredibly effective at advancing the programs that accomplish these goals,” said Imperato. “The future of shooting sports is in good hands with YSSA, and I am proud to include them on our roster of partners.”
YSSA faces the challenge of introducing new people to shooting sports and hunting by identifying and supporting the needs of the country’s most successful youth programs with safe, reliable equipment. Founded in 2007, the organization has become a distribution hub for equipment donated by industry partners, dispersing firearms, targets, and safety equipment nationwide to the programs with the greatest need or the highest impact.
In celebration of the gun maker’s 25th anniversary, Henry’s charitable Guns for Great Causes program has donated over $725,000 since June 2022 to a wide variety of categories, including pediatric cancer, military veterans, law enforcement, first responders, wildlife conservation, firearms safety education, and 2nd Amendment advocacy.
