Children's Items for Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation

This Month's Organization:

Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota is home to the Oglala Sioux Tribe with an estimated population of close to 40,000. The reservation is large, and its needs immense, commensurate with grinding poverty. The Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation focus on specific needs of the many schools and social service organizations such as shelters, children's organizations, and clinics physically located on the reservation.

Instructions:

First Families Now (clothes closet for families in need) and Little Singer Community School have need of baby and children clothing, and First Families Now also needs handmade toys. There is a long list of suggested items on their site.

No preemie sized items are needed. For cultural reasons, do not contribute anything depicting owls, snakes, or coyotes.

Project Type:

Crochet, knitting, or sewing

Supplies You'll Need:

Supplies used will vary based on your chosen pattern.

Deadline and Drop-off Instructions:

Drop-off your finished project off by August 31, 2020, during regular hours at any Greene County Public Library location. To ensure that your item remains clean during transit, please enclose it in a plastic zipper bag.
