2010 Collection Welcome Message

This new website differs significantly from the old one.  Please use the navigation column on the left to visit the pages of your choice. 

We purposely did not stop the collection of donations after our return from the Pine Ridge rez in August 2009.  Much is needed and we may not have as many opportunities this year to collect appliances, clothes and other useful items from some of our largest past donors as we had in the past.  Therefore, our collection effort is now continuous and without the usual winter break.

Please see the new "2010 Wish List" below.  It differs from the wish lists published in previous years.  Once again, the focus of our efforts will be on appliances and not in clothes.
