FLMCC’s mission is to provide assistance, financially and/or otherwise, to families with small children and/or elders who are in need of rapid assistance to deal with basic needs.
On Wednesday December 8th, we were told that two little boys on the Pine Ridge reservation, aged 3 and 4, had had to be placed with an emergency foster family. The children arrived with only the clothes they had, and though the foster family received some clothing the next day, it was clear that there would not be enough to cover an extended stay until one of the boys’ relatives could take them in.
We stepped up right away. By Thursday Dec. 9th, a group of supporters were collecting good toddler clothing, shoes, coats, hats and gloves, Pull-ups, and other much needed articles for the babies. At the time of this writing (Dec. 12th), FLMCC has also provided financial assistance so that urgent needs can be met over the coming days while awaiting arrival of the boxes of clothes and coats, which are to be shipped next week starting Monday.
And – holiday season oblige – there will also be toys!
Thanks to the support of Smoke Signal Gems and our other kind contributors and the help from supporters like Christine Hooghkirk and her colleagues and friends, FLMCC can once again proudly say: WE DELIVER.
Bless all of you. Thank you. We will keep you updated as needs be.
I need prayers for patience and energy. Thank you to my dear children D Young Man II, Santana Young Man, Mercedese Young Man, Lane Young Man and Darien Young Man. If it weren’t for their support I couldn’t help all the young ones. I love you babies for sticking with me and standing by me. Wopila especially to Michelle L Warmath and David Anthony of Freddy & Lil Massi Calling Corp, for helping me to provide for the two lil ones that were brought to me. I forgot how much energy is needed to properly care for toddlers.
