What we are looking for:

New, light-weight throw blankets that can be used for personal warmth. These are sent to places like Porcupine, South Dakota and need to be light and hand or machine washable (dry-clean only is not practical). These can be purchased from $3.00 to $7.00 at pharmacy stores and most major chain stores such as Target, WalMart and so forth. (Heavier blankets and gently used items stay local they are given to United American Indian Involvement for distribution among their clients if they are new, and taken to places like Haramokngna American Indian Cultural Center if they are used. Thanks to last year's drive, all the beds in the barracks at Haramokngna now have comforters and a few even have sheets).

Stuffed toys are usually shipped with blankets to Porcupine. All other boxed, hard-edged or fragile toys stay locally in the Southern California area and donated to local groups serving American Indian (and other) families.

School Supplies
These are given to Walking Shield, which has a distribution network far superior to our own. They are brought to OCB Trading Post where Walking Shield collects them.

Donations for Shipping
Financial contributions to help offset the cost of shipping blankets and delivering supplies are always welcome, and this year we could really use the help. You can contribute via cash, check, money order, through paypal at the email address listed below, or by joining the eScrip program. Call, write or log on to our website.
