Ways to Help




.Ways To Help The Lakota Youth in
Eagle Butte, SD

 Adopt a child by taking a “Letter to-Santa”. We are looking for individuals, families, groups, schools, businesses or churches.. Buy at least two items from his/her list or as many as you choose.  BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE WISH LIST.

We also collect extra items. Teens will often not write a letter but do have wishes. We collect extra goodies for teens such as backpacks, clock radios, cool watches, CD’s, CD players, MP3's, extra batteries, perfume, cologne, warm gloves,  and school supplies.  Dairy Queen  (the only fast food restaurant they have available)  gift certificates also make wonderful gifts.

We collect personal care items ( see suggested list). They are appreciated by all.   

Any learning toys (especially LeapPad books).

Used current prom dresses. We can use any size.  We don’t mean to be picky, but dresses must be what our daughters would want to wear to their homecomings and proms.  There is a “Passion for Fashion Night” at the youth center before prom. The girls have a sleep-over and pick their dresses and work on hair and make-up
Check out the "Cheyenne River Youth Project Passion for Fashion 2010 on YouTube to see what a wonderful project this is.

 Any extra funds collected will be used to buy gifts for the children. 

We also need:  wrapping paper, gift bags, tape, bows, name tags and boxes. Parents will come in and wrap all the gifts we send to the center.

We can always use Gift Cards to JC Penney, Wal-Mart, Lowe’s, K-Mart and DQ.

All gifts are taken by truck to the youth center in Eagle Butte, SD. Free of charge! We would really appreciate receiving  all gifts by December 3rd. We will be packing everything  before the truck comes. Please check the website for schedule times the collection site will be open for drop offs or contact us to make special arrangements.  If you wish to have a tax receipt please bring a copy of your receipts for the  items you are donating  if they are new or a list of the used items so that we may attach them to the tax receipts.
