(VINCENNES) (AP) - The organizers of a southwestern Indiana program that collects donated venison for families in need say the initiative is growing in popularity in the struggling economy.

North Knox Social Ministries says the nearly decade-old program is being used increasingly as more people seek the group's help to feed their families.

The program involves hunters donating deer to local taxidermist Jack Smith, who processes the meat and gives it to the ministry for families.

Organizer Cheryl Smith says each deer hunting season some hunters take more deer than they can use. Smith says hunters wishing to donate venison can offer to pay for the cost of processing the meat or ask North Knox Social Ministries to cover part or all of it.
