    THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize an important program which is assisting needy Pennsylvanians at a pivotal time of the year.

    In my State, this is deer season, with hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians estimated to participate through the end of this week.

    It is also the holiday season, which is, of course, a very difficult time for people across the Commonwealth who are less fortunate.

    This is why the Hunters Sharing the Harvest is so important. Through this program, hunters across Pennsylvania can take a deer they have harvested to a participating meat processing facility, and it will be donated to a food pantry, a soup kitchen, or other organization which assists the needy.

    This program is in its 24th year of assisting people across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. One deer alone can provide enough meat for up to 200 meals. Last year more than 2,300 deer were donated, amounting to nearly 100,000 pounds of venison.

    This is a season of giving, and I am proud of the hunters, the meat processing facilities, and charitable organizations across Pennsylvania who are participating in this program.
