It already feels really cold and it’s only October. Out on the Great Plains people are preparing for winter.
On the Native American reservations in South Dakota, many families are struggling to make ends meet. In winter, the need to keep a steady supply of propane or pay the electricity bills adds to the burden and sometimes families find themselves running low on the necessary funds to keep their tanks filled or electricity on, between income checks. It can really come down to paying for heating and putting food on the table.
When the temperature falls below zero and the winds pick up, propane is used up faster. This makes it an everyday challenge to keep homes warm and hot water heaters operational.
Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp has as a fundamental mission to assist families in South Dakota in this type of urgent situation. We work directly with the propane and electricity companies involved to ensure that families with children or elders do not find themselves with no heat when wind chills can reach -40°F.
But we can only help as far as our funds allow. Propane for one week costs a minimum of around $200 depending on current prices. That’s why in order to continue to help, we need your support.
Please consider a donation, no matter how small, to our Propane and Heating Fund. You can contribute to our work to help ensure that heating and electricity remains available for families with children and elders on the South Dakota reservations by donating securely online via PayPal – just click on the “donate” button on this page – or if you prefer you can send a check to “FREDDY & LITTLE MASSI CALLING CORP”, 1031 Cumberland Ter, Davie, FL 33325. All donations are tax-deductible in the United States.
Thank you for your gift and for allowing us to carry on with our work which has helped dozens of families stay comfortable in winter since 2012.
