‘Shootin’ Clays’ to support adults with intellectual disabilities

News

Let off some steam and help a good cause Friday at a sporting clay charity event in Savannah.

Pockets Full of Sunshine’s Shootin’ Clays for a Cause is happening Friday, March 8.

The Lowcountry group supports enrichment and employment opportunities for adults with intellectual disabilities.

“It’s important that they are able to come into the world and feel normal. And they are,” said Amanda Nelson with Pockets Full of Sunshine. “They might be a little bit different than others but that doesn’t mean they can’t live and function in the world just like we do, so they are able to get jobs at Kroger and get jobs at Goodwill and put a smile on people’s face.” 

The event begins at the Forest City Gun Club in Savannah with coffee and a beginnings clinic in the morning, followed by lunch and a shooting demonstration. Then, you can start hitting targets yourself.

There is an entry fee of $250, but this is the only fundraiser Pockets Full of Sunshine does all year long, and all proceeds go to the organization.
