Hornady Manufacturing is donating $2 for every dollar spent on all online Hornady sales of apparel, hats and accessories available at the company’s online shop until Sept. 15 to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. Money raised during the Hornady for Houston fundraiser will go to the Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund—which was established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and County Judge Ed Emmett to receive tax-deductible flood-relief donations. More than $34 million has been raised as this is being written.

“Texans are well-known for their love of hunting and the shooting sports,” said Steve Hornady, President of Hornady Manufacturing Company, “and they have long been among the best supporters of our family business. It’s only right that we stand by them and do what we can in their time of need.”

Pick up a Hornady for Houston T-shirt and you can show your support for the victims while literally doubling your purchase price in a donation.

For firearm dealers dealing with the aftermath, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is making disaster relief funds available to its members whose businesses were impacted. “We want our member companies to know that their trade association stands with them in these difficult times, and that this assistance is another benefit of membership,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior vice president and CMO. “This is in keeping with the monetary relief we provided our members in the Northeast after Hurricane Sandy wreaked her havoc in 2012, and to those in the Southeast following Hurricane Matthew in 2016.”

Applicants should contact NSSF Member Services by calling (203) 426-1320 ext. 209. A Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Application is available online at NSSF.org/relief. Additionally, any FFL needing assistance with their physical location in the affected Texas regions need to contact their local BATFE field office regarding removal of firearms and ammunition inventory, ATF Forms 4473 and 3310.4, and acquisition and disposition records from those business premises to a safe location, as well as remedies for damage to or irreparable loss of these items and required reporting of such losses.
