First, let me start off by saying thank you to everyone who contributed towards our Easter program. We were able to deliver hams to all of the Reservations we serve. Many Native American families were able to enjoy this day with each other and not have to worry if they were going to go hungry or not. It also left them with food for many days after. All this was made possible thanks to our generous donors. We were also able to acquire loads of potatoes, water and bread before Easter which we also delivered along with the hams.
Other exciting news that we have to share, Eric, who works in the warehouse in South Dakota, has almost completed his CDL classes. This is great news because it means that we will be able to have all three tractor trailers and our box truck out on the road delivering throughout the week. Food, clothing, etc will be arriving to the Reservations quicker since we will have an extra truck on the road.
I wanted to send this email to you today not only to let you know about some of the positive things that have been happening around the Reservations and with NAHA but also the emergency requests that we need your help with. We have hundreds of Native American families living on the Reservations in South Dakota who urgently need Emergency Vouchers to buy food, gas, medicine and heating fuel.
School will be closing soon for the summer months and without the schools to supply it, many children will go without breakfast and lunch. So the Emergency Vouchers will help fill this gap during the summer months. Anything you can contribute will help provide for homeless families, elderly men and women and Native American mothers with infant sons and daughters who need medical attention, milk and diapers. So, do you see how much your help is needed, not just by NAHA but by the families and elders living on the Reservations? I know you will be the generous and caring person we at NAHA know you are and help provide Emergency Vouchers to the Native Americans who are in dire need of help just to survive day to day.
