Imperial, MO – The Student Air Rifle Program (SAR) is thrilled to partner with the NRA Foundation to offer SAR equipment grants to Pennsylvania schools.
“Programs like SAR allow students an opportunity to learn firearms safety and shooting sports fundamentals promoting character, responsibility, and self-esteem. We are pleased to be a part of the SAR Pennsylvania effort”, noted Kory Enck, NRA Foundation Senior Field Representative for Western Pennsylvania.
“Funds raised locally in PA were used to offer two separate grants for SAR. The grants, one for Western PA and one for Eastern PA, help schools complete their SAR equipment purchase.” added Kory.
During the inaugural Pennsylvania Basic Air Riflery Instructor Training in October, SAR was presented with an $8,000 check from the NRA Foundation offsetting the cost of the first Pennsylvania SAR schools.
“We value our partnership with the NRA Foundation and look forward to expanding SAR in Pennsylvania,” mentioned Jake Hindman, President and CEO of SAR.
