WE NEED SOME HELP SPONSORING A COUPLE OF ACTIVITIES
ANGEL TREE PROJECT
We collaborate with other service providers to make this happen every year. This year I believe there are 130 plus children on the list. Of those children the PRC is working on Christmas Care Packages for 17 babies (10 girls and 7 boys). We have had several free will offering fundraisers (baked goods, soup, chili, frybread and so forth). After much thought and consideration we have come to the conclusion that the most culturally appropriate gift we could give would be a starquilt or pendleton for each infant. In addition to the blankets we are hoping to provide some baby personal hygeine items as well. Should you have any resources to help bring this project to fruition please come out and support our children! Should you wish to help an older child please contact Sharron Hand at MHA Social Services as she has the master list and the break down of ages and gender. Her contact number is 627-8158
