You made FLMCC’s 2015 Space heater drive a success.
Thanks to your support and generosity we were able to ship enough space heaters for 14 families on the Pine Ridge and Standing Rock reservations in South Dakota.
These space heaters will help keep families warm as the cold sets in and be a complement to the more usual form of heating with propane. We hope the families will be able to enjoy a less stressful winter with this supplementary form of heating.
We want to extend our particular thanks to: Debbie and Ray Hirsch, Sharon Smith, Deborah Wright, Tara Brousseau, Anne Gale, Rene Dubois III, Anniemay Parish, and also to Kim Lawrence and her kind customers at Smoke Signal Gems, for their unfailing support and encouragement, as well as our gratitude to our anonymous donors and all our social media “sharers” whose support is an integral part of making this kind of project happen.
Many respectful thanks also to Oglala Lakota elder Jean Belt, her daughter Davidica Littlespottedhorse and all the family for their much-appreciated hard work and assistance in this project.
We are also beginning to ship good warm coats and other clothes, scarves, hats, and we are getting ready to assist with propane when needed. If you would like to help, please consider contributing to our shipping and propane fund. You can do so today by simply clicking on the “Donate” button at the top of the page. Your donations are tax-deductible in the United States. If you have gently-used clothes or other household things you no longer need, see our “Get involved” page for addresses of reliable contact people who will help get these goods to those who need them, or feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your support!
