Since it is impossible to provide assistance to individual families on the reservation from a distance and do it equitably, the Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation website focuses on specific needs of the schools and social service organizations such as shelters, children’s organizations, and clinics on the reservation. These organizations, always understaffed and under funded, struggle to serve thousands of children, women and men in dire need.
Please do not underestimate the importance of a small donation. Your contribution, sent directly to a reservation organization–even if only a single pair of socks for a child who has none–makes a huge impact when combined with many others.
The needs are many and change constantly. Your donations can be from school, sewing, crafts, sporting, baby, and office supplies, to toiletries, clothing, Christmas gifts, holiday items, bed, bath and kitchen linens, cold weather gear, crayons and more.
