Thanks to a wonderful organization called Friends of Pine Ridge , you can find inspiration, direction, and Specific Urgent Needs when you make donations to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Check out their excellent Free Knitting, Crochet, and Sewing Patterns, and list of easily accessible, affordable back-to-school needs for children (such as underwear).
You can bypass shipping costs to ARC by sending your donations directly to Pine Ridge. Here is a list of the Current Donation Drives; each link brings you to a complete list, and a mailing address.
Three cheers to Friends of Pine Ridge for educating, sharing patterns, and making it easy to participate! We are grateful, and ready to go!
