Venison Donation Coalition (VDC)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I know this is not a program or organization that is actually connected to QDMA or the Greater Rochester Branch. However, as part of QDMA's initiative to share venison, Greater Rochester and the branches across the state chose to support the efforts of the VDC. Many members on here have been very supportive with cash donations through the DECALS license portal, our Go Fund Me drive and actually donating deer through the participating processors. Thank you for that. 

I wanted to put this post up for a couple of reasons. First, I was asked to sit on the Board of the VDC and we had the annual meeting yesterday. It was very informative and shed a lot of light for me on how the organization works and actually accomplishes their mission. I left with a greater appreciation for their passion to feed the needy and to keep this organization funded and going into the future. 

Next I wanted to remind everyone as license come on sale in a few days (8/10) to consider making a donation when purchasing your license. It does not end up in NY coffers. NY simple accumulates the donated funds and send them directly to VDC. I have already set up my personal account for the new online licensing system and it is featured prominently on the donation tab as you make your way through the license purchase.  If you buy in person please remind the agent you are buying it from that you want to donate. This is one hurdle we are trying to overcome, but since NY doesn't seem to do much training on this systems, the agents never seem to ask. 

Finally, I am proposing to the GRST officers and board that we run the Go Fund Me again and put the branch match out there at thee same $1,000 as the last two years. 

Please, even a couple bucks will help. $2 puts 4 serving of venison in front of the hungry in need in our state. I can't think of a better way to pay forward. Pick your preferred method and join me in supporting this worthy program. 

Keep an eye on this thread as I will be posting some up coming news about the VDC that you may be interested in.
