Moved by the stories filtering into the SNEWSÂ®
headquarters, and following conversations with Bobby McCain of Buffalo Peak Outfiitters in Jackson, Miss., our co-publisher reached out to Outdoor
Industry Association president Frank Hugelmeyer, who immediately agreed to set up an emergency relief fund to provide financial support to outdoor retailers and outfitters whose businesses have been impacted by the disaster. SNEWSÂ® seeded the fund with an immediate $500 donation.
The fund will be managed by OIA and 100-percent of all donated funds
will go to help outdoor businesses get back on their feet or support their
employees during these difficult times.
Please make your check out to "OIA Hurricane Relief Fund" and send your donations to:
