Giving Circle

The following groups have formed a “Giving Circle” to assist those Native Americans living at Rosebud and Pineridge Indian Reservations. As many of you know they have just recently come through a terrible blizzard and many were without heat and electricity for two to three weeks. Transportation came to a standstill because the snow plows were getting stuck. In some places there is limited power.

The following groups have gotten together and are collecting clothing, blankets, shoes, boots, and cash donations. For further information please contact Robin Carneen at the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club.
