Helping Hands to Help Hunts for Healing

Helping Hands to Help Hunts for Healing

The Hunts for Healing fund is solely supported by private donations and was created to sponsor & accommodate wounded soldiers returning from military missions in Iraq and Afghanistan
Saturday, August 10th will mark the date the American Legion Riders 957’s Helping Hands Benefit Motorcycle Ride will lend its efforts to help the healing of fellow veterans. Proceeds from this year’s ride and silent auction will go to a non-profit organization fund called Hunts for Healing, located in Laceyville, PA. 
The Hunts for Healing fund is solely supported by private donations and was created to sponsor & accommodate wounded soldiers returning from military missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and veterans so they can participate in outdoor programs.  The programs range from hunter safety, clay target shooting, pheasant, upland and small game hunting, to fishing and camping. All participants have successfully completed a mental and physical evaluation prior to embarking on any excursion or event. 
Hunts for Healing events take place primarily in Northeastern Pennsylvania, but in the future may extend beyond our state borders.  The mission and field of interest are to create an atmosphere that promotes challenges in the outdoors and healing from within.
With the assistance of volunteer guides, mentors and trained field dogs, the experiences Hunts for Healing provides aides in the physical, emotional and spiritual healing, as well as, providing social interaction that allows the soldiers to transition back into their daily lives.
Your tax deductible contributions provide funds that pay for lodging, meals, hunting gear and clothing, fishing equipment, licenses, targets, ammo, safety gear, transportation expenses, and any items necessary to provide a safe and successful event.
The Helping Hands Benefit Ride registration begins at 9 am, Saturday August 10th.  The ride will begin at the Benfer-Miller Legion Post in New Berlin and leave at approximately 11:30 am. The Fallen Heroes Wall will be on display by Tim Wright in the morning. Cost for the ride is $15 per driver / $5 per passenger. Following the ride, a meal will be provided to all participants and silent auction items will be on display all day to be auctioned off after the meal at approximately 5:30 pm. The event is open to the public, including cars, and we invite everyone to stop by to support this worthy cause.  If you wish to come out for the auction & the meal, a meal ticket will be $7.50.
