Benefitting the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota
In partnership with Walking Shield

How It Works:
New blankets and soft toys – new, hand or machine washable blankets are sent to the Porcupine District of South Dakota, directly to a respected family in the community who redistributes them to those in need; and individuals in other locations as funding for shipping permits.
New hard or boxed toys – distributed to the non profit organization Walking Shield which has a nation-wide reservation distribution network, and other local agencies/families.
New school supplies – donated to Walking Shield for distribution to reservation schoolchildren.
Financial Contributions - very much needed to ship items to South Dakota via USPS or FedEx. Shipping costs run $600.00 to $800.00 and come entirely from donations.
Gently Used Blankets and Warm Clothing Items - this year we are accommodating a request for used items; we are seeking gently used warm clothing items and blankets that will be distributed locally (in the high desert regions) to needy and homeless individuals and families, regardless of ethnicity or other factors.
