It’s been a busy month for NAHA as we had to get out extra heating vouchers to the Native Americans living on the Reservations that were hit with three big snow storms in May. What would have been our last check to the St Francis Energy Company for the vouchers was not. We had to help put heat in the homes of families during these harsh couple of weeks. A wonderful product that we acquired this month was an assortment of medical supplies. These medical supplies were distributed to the nursing homes, dialysis centers and hospitals on the Reservations. One of those items was diabetes testing strips. As some of you may know they are not cheap and so many Native Americans have diabetes but cannot afford these strips. We also acquired a full truckload of “Croc” shoes in all different sizes and colors. Many Native Americans may only have one pair of shoes that they’ve had for years, so for them to be able to receive a pair of these “summer shoes” was such a joy.

The struggle for survival is at a crucial point, and each month presents a challenge greater than the month before here at NAHA. Without generous and kind donors like you, we would run out of the food we distribute and the blankets that keep penniless Native Americans from freezing under the brutal South Dakota winter winds. We need you as a partner, more than ever. So please continue the help that makes you so special to us. Will you give even a token contribution each month so we can plan our own actions to help those who live so far below the poverty level? Every cent counts and every cent is put to work. Every cent means a better chance for at least a barely civilized lifestyle for those who can’t share the existence we, luckier than they are, take for granted.

So if you could make a monthly gift each month to help Native American families in desperate need it would be greatly appreciated. If you can’t help monthly that’s ok, a one-time gift will help out too. So please, whatever you can do whether it’s a monthly or a one-time donation, WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!!! Just click on the donate now button and it will take you to a secure page where you have the option to pick monthly or one-time donation. We are counting on you and we know you will not let us down!!!
