MidwayUSA, a catalog and Internet retailer and wholesaler with JUST ABOUT EVERTHING® for Shooting, Reloading and Gunsmithing, presented a $4 million check to the National Rifle Association at the Annual Meetings in Louisville, KY, on behalf of their NRA "Round-Up" Customers.
The $4 million donation represents the total amount raised through MidwayUSA's NRA "Round-Up" program since its inception in 1992. Every MidwayUSA Customer, when placing an order by phone, mail or over internet has the opportunity to "Round-Up" the total of their purchase to the next highest dollar. These "Round-Up" donations are sent to the NRA and placed in the NRA/ILA National Endowment for the Protection of the 2nd Amendment every week, with no administrative or holding charges assessed. The NRA/ILA only uses the interest gained to help fund programs, allowing the Endowment to continually grow each year.
The check was presented by Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA and creators of the NRA "Round-Up" program.
