Donation: School Supplies

Second Annual School Supplies Collection For South Dakota Indian Reservations Together for Hope, High Plains  

ARBC will be collecting school supplies for children on the Indian Reservations of South Dakota. The collection continues through May 25, 2007.  Ray & Kathleen Kesner will be distributing the school supplies near the end of August.  

Here is what a former elementary teacher on one reservation said concerning the needs of her school age children. “I witnessed a dramatic change in kids by the 3rd grade. Believe it or not, a lot of our kids by that age are already disillusioned with life and have already begun to live in the ‘here and now.’ It’s a day by day existence with little or no plans (or hopes) for the future. So pray! Pray for the hearts, minds and bodies of the people to be healed.”  Following is a list of the items we are collecting. Please limit your contributions to these items.

  • Backpacks, new or gently used                                Colored Pencils
