BCV Statement on Venison Donations:

Over the years, The Baptist Children’s Village has been blessed by the generosity of Mississippi hunters, who have donated venison from their hunts.  The value of their generosity cannot be overstated.  

As most of those hunters are now aware, Mississippi faces a new challenge regarding harvesting and consuming venison.  The emergence of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in the northern and western regions of the state has prompted responses by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) and the Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH).  MDWFP has established CWD Management Zones in the affected regions of the state.  Establishing these zones also resulted in the implementation of stringent regulations related to processing venison from deer taken within these Management Zones.  Information regarding these zones and the accompanying regulations can be found on the MDWFP website.

Therefore, The Baptist Children’s Village will now only accept donations of venison harvested and processed in areas of the state outside of the CWD Management Zones.  When venison donations are offered, we will be asking for the Mississippi county from which it was harvested, and where it was processed, before accepting the donation. 

Thank you for understanding our need to implement this new procedure and, consequently, helping us maintain one of the strongest pillars of the child care provided by the BCV – that of protecting the health and safety of the children whom God has entrusted to our care.
