With the acquirement of some excellent loads we are able to provide the necessities to families on the Reservations. We have been able to provide homes that have concrete or dirt floors with nice new proper flooring that a home should have. We helped the elderly center with new appliances, flooring, lighting, etc. as the building was in very poor shape and was in dire need of updating. The dormitories were provided with new clothing for the children and school supplies. A majority of the children that stay at the dormitories arrive with just the clothing on their backs, so to be able to provide them with these necessities, is such a wonderful thing.
So far this summer we have provided food and drinks to the fairs, Pow Wows and work programs on the Reservations. Later this month we will be contributing food and drinks for the Crow Creek Tribe Fair and Pow Wow and Rosebud Tribe Fair and Pow Wow. We are always happy to help with events like these because we know that it helps the children forget about the bad and gives them a chance to have fun, play games and just enjoy themselves.
Two of the poorest counties in the USA are on the Reservations that we serve. I would like to ask; won’t you please help us provide food for the Native Americans. Many are starving on the Reservations. In fact, two of every ten Native American households are without food. That is where we step in to put food on the tables and save lives. We cannot do this without your help. We deliver more than three million pounds of food every year and we are able to do that through contributions from our generous donors and our resources that we buy food from, undercharging us. An example of how much food we can buy with your donation: $15 will purchase 500 pounds of food; $30 will purchase 1,000 pounds of food and so on. The more you can contribute, the more food we are able to provide hungry Native Americans. So please send in whatever amount you can afford today so we can start getting the food delivered. Please click the DONATE NOW button to contribute today so we can start getting the food delivered. So you can see why this is such an urgency.
I would also like to include that we are a 4-star charity with Charity Navigator and have been for 13 years. 96.4% of our total expenses go towards our program services. We also accept gently-used clothing, new toys for the children and anything that you and I would use on a daily basis. You may ship these items to:
