Way Short on Thanksgiving Funding


600 families are planning and hoping for Thanksgiving dinner. So far we can buy 200 turkeys and fixings for the meal. Ruby will be serving her Goldie Mae meals to more than 100 homeless people and Marian on Rosebud will be providing a holiday meal for more than 150 homeless people.

Even though the cost of a 14 lb. turkey is $15 we are keeping the cost of a complete box of food at $65.

It is impossible for food distribution workers to be faced with a grandmother asking for food for the kids and tell her that she can't have any.

It is impossible for the One Spirit staff to tell a weeping mother that we are not able to give her food.

Could you?

To help with our costs, a wonderful long-time supporter has made an afghan to support the Thanksgiving dinners. Everyone who donates $15.00 (the cost of a turkey) or more will be entered into a drawing for the afghan.

Afghan   Afghan in Lakota colors, made by an OS supporter, 63" wide not counting fringe and about 50" long.


This Thanksgiving, let’s be sure that all the families will be able to celebrate and no one is left out.
