MINT SPRING, VA.; Parker Bows, a leading U.S. manufacturer of high quality Compound bows, Crossbows and Crossbow Accessories has assisted in raising over $20,000 for Virginia Based Hunters for the Hungry (HFTH) program in 2013.

Parker has actively supported HFTH in Virginia for over 10 years, providing product and funds to assist in feeding needy families across the state. Funds are raised through raffles, banquets and special events throughout Virginia.

There are about 17 other states that have similar hunting based feeding programs.
