‘Tis the Season for Giving…
It’s that time of year to start thinking CHRISTMAS! Hoping you will be able to help us not forget about children on the reservation this season. Many have no water, electricity and will not be able to have Christmas like most of us. Will you consider giving Walmart, Target or Best Buy gift certificates, or giving a “Christmas Dream Box” for the youth? Most look to “Christmas at the Dream Center” for a gift at Christmas. Tell all of your friends, church and family !! Thank you so much!
Sometimes, the only Christmas gift Native American children receive is from The Dream Center.
Over 3000 toys are needed for this upcoming Christmas season for the Native American reservations of the Northwest. Help us deliver Christmas to the children and elders on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation! – December 13th and 14th
