FREDERICK, Md. — Heritage Training and Shooting Center in Frederick, Md., recently donated roughly $1,300 to the Wounded Warrior Project through a firearm raffle.

Participants donated $5 for a raffle ticket and had to complete a target challenge for an additional entry.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization that presents services, events and more for veterans that were wounded from military actions after Sept. 11, 2001. According to the Wounded Warrior Project website, every dollar, hour and action goes toward serving wounded veterans.

The indoor shooting range promotes safe firearm use and a sense of community. Heritage has participated in the Frederick community by providing free firearm safety clinics, training the community and hosting the Well Armed Woman chapters.

Heritage Training and Shooting Center celebrated its third birthday in July. Since opening, Heritage has donating to the Frederick Food bank, Toys for Tots, Pink Ribbon Frederick and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Last year, Heritage Training and Shooting Center donated $1,458 to the Wounded Warrior Project. The business raffled a custom Glock 19 customized by Antietam Firearms and Glock.

This year, the firearm, a custom Heritage Sig Sauer P226 Talo Edition, was won by Mark Dahlquist, a complete member of Heritage.
