The NRA Foundation has awarded the Salem High School Trap Team a grant totaling $2,770 to fund shotshells, and range time. “We are very excited about Spring River Valley FNRA,” said Head Coach Wes James “and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in our community.”

Statewide over $308,000 collected by FNRA Committees have been dispersed to over eighty grant applications this year.

This money helps support shooting sports like yours and in areas including safety, youth education, women-focused clinics, law enforcement training, hunter safety, range improvements, firearms marksmanship training and Eddie Eagle programs for the younger children.
