Community Programs
Helping Those To Help Themselves
Firewood For Indians
Firewood for Indians: This program would consist of volunteers who bring needed firewood to elders and disabled on the Reservation. Providing fire wood for cooking and heating with the volunteer support from their community.

First someone will have to organize a process to determine who needs firewood. Then volunteers will need those who cut the wood, then split the wood to fit into fit places or stoves. Others will have to transport the wood to a central location to be deliver to those in need.

This would only be a winter project. However, autumn would be a good time to begin the program before the brutal winter that South Dakota received every year.

Clothing

Clothing: Delivering summer and mostly winter clothing, including blankets, coats, winter gloves & caps, shirts & pants, etc., to Native American families. We collect donated cloths from the Mormon church communities in Utah and California private and public organizations and individuals.

We received dozens of bags of donated clothes in 2007 & 2008 that were sent to La Jolla Indian Reservation in California after the devastating fires and Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. In 2008 we will be shipping a large truck load already awaiting shipment

Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief: Assisting vulnerable populations when hit by fires, flood, extreme winters, water shortages and other natural disasters.

This last years after the devastating fires in Southern California, the La Jolla Reservation was destroyed by 80% and the remaining structures were mostly destroyed by smoke and water damage. We sent 3 truck loads of donated clothes, toys, food, blankets and more in 2007.

Volunteer Transportation Assistance Program
Volunteer Rez Transportation Assistance Program: This program would help shuttle elders and the disabled to receive government assistance and medical appointments as needed.
There is no charge for volunteer transportation services. Drivers could be volunteers who provide a personalized, one-on-one transportation service. The fuel and maintenance costs would come from other funding sources.

The Volunteer Transportation Assistance Program would need long term sustainable funding which could come from numerous government and private grants or charitable and philanthropic organizations.

This program is hoped to receive future funding due to we do not have the resources to provide this program at this time.

Our Success is only as Good as our Team of Volunteers

We are a grassroots volunteer charity. we strive for 100% of all donations to reach those in need. Our Board, Staff and Volunteers have agreed to accept no salaries for our work with this corporation. Our efforts are to ensure the continual movement of donations and supplies to our fellow Native Americans who are truly in need. Our motive is the sincere desire to serve from the heart, as our ancestors did.

Some of these dedicated volunteers have decades of experience in humanitarian programs, working unselfishly while receiving payments of warm smiles, thank you hugs and heart felt love.

There is no greater satisfaction of the heart then to see the smile on a child’s face when handing them a toy or an elder’s smile upon receiving a warm blanket. There is no greater joy then to serve those who can not serve themselves.
