Pine Ridge Reservation

Pine Ridge Reservation, in South Dakota, is home to the Oglala Sioux Tribe. It's needs are many. I just sent a box with sweaters, hats, mittens, scarves and more(including two teddy bears) to the Cangleska women's shelter. I also sent the results of my brown yarn challenge, the lapghan and slippers to another organization on the reservation. They are in need of warm clothing and space heaters right now. Many on the reservation live in homes with no or insufficient heat and it gets very cold in South Dakota.
They have many needs, right now they are taking cash donations for Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday meals and asking for gifts for the children (hence the teddy bears) for Christmas.
They even collect Labels and Boxtops for Education for the schools if you can collect some of those and send them.
There is too much for me to talk about here so if you would like to visit the website and see where you can help out click here.
