While in Texas I stopped by Texas Trophy Hunter and ask them if they had any hats I could give to the USSA kids. They told me they would look through their inventory and mail me something. I was hoping to get 12 hats or shirts so I could hand them out to an upcoming deer hunt.
Jenny from TTH sent me an email that said, “I'm shipping to you via UPS a box full of stuff for the kids.”
I went to pick up my son from football practice and when I got back to work there sitting out side my office were 24 boxes [some weighing over 60 lbs.] from Texas Trophy Hunter. I just stood there for a few seconds because I was so overwhelmed! I could feel all the love and kindness from the staff at TTH in those unopened boxes. Here, I just wanted 12 hats for USSA’s special kids and I had a department store outside my office.
It was after 6:00 p.m. so I called home and asked my children to come to my office and help me stack all the boxes. My kids and I looked through the boxes and we were like kids in a big toy store. There were shirts, T-shirts, hats and sweat pants of all colors and sizes. Pictures of the USSA kids flashed through my mind and it wasn’t long and I started matching up items to the special children across America.
My blessing to Texas Trophy Hunter and especially to you Jenny, your love for these special children in shown in your act of kindness!!

Eric Badofsky [USSA Board Member] contacted the Illinois Center for Rehabilitation [DHS] to see if there was anything USSA could do for their “Special Young Adults.”
DHS’ Division of Rehabilitation Services is Illinois’s lead agency serving individuals with disabilities. DRS works in partnership with people with disabilities and their families to assist them in making knowledgeable choices to achieve full community participation through employment, education, and independent living opportunities.
DHS’s Activity Therapist, Robert Rispoli, had suggested we send a couple of hats or shirts. With the help of Texas Trophy Hunter each child got their own shirt, and you can see by the picture they were all very happy!
