Getting Ready for Cold Weather


 

Winter is creeping up on us again and my thoughts turn toward the Lakota children.

Pine Ridge Reservation, located in South Dakota. The tribal government records show that there are 38,000 members living on the Pineridge reservation.  Unemployment is over 80% compared to the rest of the country where unemployment runs below 8%.  The average salary is less than $8,000 for a family of four or even more. Most families do not have adequate heat, food, water, healthcare or clothing. 
 
Last winter there was a record low temperature of minus 20 degrees!
This year we are requesting warm dresses, clothing and extras to be sent to The Wounded Knee District School.  This school is the one that was featured in the television special with Diane Sawyer called A Hidden America: The Children of the Plains. 
To send a package by regular mail USPS send it to:
Wounded Knee District School
P.O.Box 350
Manderson, SD 57756

To send a package by UPS/Fed Ex use this address:
Wounded Knee District School
101 Main St
Manderson, SD 57756

Because of the severe climate and inadequate heat, dresses need to go as they are made. If you have the means please consider including an extras- such as panties, tights, leggings, hat, and gloves or mittens. 
Thank you in advance your kind heart and generous spirit.

  6. Does anyone have a measurement chart for different sized T-shirts?
    For example: If using a T-shirt sized 8-10, what is the measurement below the armhole to mark in order to place the Pelon? Our sewing group is planning to make these dresses to donate to Dress A Girl. Thank you.
