We at "Tillicum Wawa" program would like to heartily thank all of our listeners who donated all the coats, warm cloths and shoes to the children k-12 grades on the Pine Ridge Rez.. Donations are still coming in and we will see that they are all sent. A load of shoes went out last week, $360.00 of shipping charges were payed by an un-named doner for the next load.
The children will be so happy to be warm this winter. The U.S. Census dept has listed the popuation of the rez at around18,000 people, when in reality there are around 40,000 folks that live there. So their alottement of funds for cloths is very little. I'm sure that other reservations have the same problems.
Wado and thank you sincerely, The kids on Pine Ridge, Tillicum Wawa crew and KBOO radio
