LEEK HUNTING AND MOUNTAIN PRESERVE INC
November 4, 2011

LEEK is a non-profit brings injured warriors to "God's Country Potter County, Pennsylvania for hunting trips. Leek supplies everything the warriors need for a successful hunt... dry warm housing - Dunham Barracks named after local Medal of Honor recipient Corporal Jason Dunham, meals, hunting gear, guides and many local landowners have opened their properties to the warriors. Our warriors come to us in wide variety of conditions from wheelchair bound, to limbs missing, traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries. LEEK allows these warriors to realize they can still do the things they loved to do prior to their injuries. I've had a number of them thank me time and time again for showing them they can do things they once did.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen warriors to come LEEK and be able to let their hair down and enjoy themselves, while realizing - "hey - I can still hunt and enjoy the great outdoors". Most of our deer hunts have a very high success rate. All of our hunts feature some great properties and great opportunities for the warriors to enjoy lots of wildlife.

Ways to make it better...

Like to see more injured warriors come and enjoy LEEK's program

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It shows me how blessed and fortunate I am to live ...in the Land of Free and Home of the Brave. A number of the injured guys that have come to our hunts still keep in contact with me. These guys inspire me with their positive attitudes and humor.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Great! Being able to serve those who gave so much for this great nation and the freedoms we enjoyed. These injured guys inspired me to do more for others. It was very satisfying to be able to show these injured warriors they can still do the things they used to such as hunting.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
