Winter 2016 Heating and Propane Campaign


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.

Your donations make a difference!


For almost five years now, FLMCC has been active in bringing much-needed assistance to families and elders on the Native American Reservations in South Dakota and elsewhere who are undergoing financial hardship.

We cannot stress enough how very important and appreciated your donations are in helping us to achieve our goals of ensuring that no family or elder is left to deal with lack of heat in the cold of winter, good winter clothing for school and everyday living, or necessary food when times are tough. And we cannot thank you enough for the generosity you have shown in supporting us in this mission.

Food and clothing assistance needed


food supplies June 28 2016

A few weeks ago, Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp assisted a grandmother in South Dakota, Dollie Red Elk, with her utilities bill so that she could recover her service and be able to cook and have hot water again. Dollie contacted us this week to thank everyone again for this help and say that she had been able to make arrangements to help her keep the bill covered in the future, but that this had left her with very little for groceries until her next social security check arrives at the end of July. $200 in food stamps do not go far to meeting the nutritional needs of growing children; there is a food pantry where she can get some supplies this month, but with a 7-year old girl and two teen grandsons in her charge, she feared she would  not be able to meet the family’s grocery needs or the coming month. Your donations will allow us to provide a little assistance with groceries so that Dollie can make sure the children get nutritious meals every day until she gets back on her feet.

We have also had a request for assistance with clothing for a single father on the Pine Ridge Reservation who has four children aged 7 to 13. He and the children are currently homeless and any help you may be able to provide so that we can ship a few clothes to tide the family over would be much appreciated. If you have clothing you think might be suitable, please feel free to leave a message on our Facebook Page.

You can make a secure, tax-deductible donation on our Home Page (PayPal buttons at the top and bottom of the page) or by clicking on the “Donate Now” button at the top of our Facebook Page. Or if you prefer you can mail a check to the address in the image at the top of this page. And if you shop on Amazon, please consider making Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp your preferred charity through Amazon Smiles!

Thank you all so much for your help! It is so very appreciated!

WE CANNOT DO THIS ALONE. TEAM EFFORT AND DONATIONS ARE THE KEY INGREDIENTS TO OUR EFFORTS. Everyday we get requests for assistance & too often we have to turn down some and prioritize help which sometimes seem unfair. Please join us to get this done right.
