Cattaraugus County 4-H Program receives Justin Corbet Shooting Sports Foundation grant

ELLICOTTVILLE – Cattaraugus County 4-H Program was awarded $1,035 in a grant from the Topeka-based Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation Inc. This money will be used to purchase equipment for archery and shotgun leagues for the 4-H Cattaraugus County Youth Program. The shooting sports program is designed to help 4-H youth to develop responsibility, self-motivation, and personal safety as well as many other lifelong skills.

Justin Corbet was a young man, whose life was tragically cut short, who truly loved the great outdoors and shooting sports. The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, a 501 (3) corporation, is dedicated to his memory and is committed to providing leadership, support and financial assistance to qualified programs and individuals dedicated to providing family oriented hunting, shooting and educational activities to youth, women and persons with disabilities.

The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation was established in late 2005 by family friends and associates who share Justins love of the out-of-doors and a willingness to help others with experience. To date, the Foundation has awarded approximately $125,000 to qualified organizations.
