In July of this year we will leave for the Rez with a truck load of 500 backpacks filled with school supplies for children in 3 villages on the Pine Ridge Reservation!
But before we leave, it will be time to once again start purchasing for the 2010 school year. We purchase the backpacks from a distributor where we can get a good deal on them and purchase the school supplies as the "back to school" sales start in July. If we wait longer than that the prices are considerable higher which means less children will be helped.
So here we are, hat in hand, asking for your help. Any gift if greatly appreciated - especially in this tough economy. Remember all of your donations are tax deductible through the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty.
