Christmas Toy Drive

Spreading Hope

Each November the Friends of Lakota Youth organization distributes Wish List Letters from children who live on an Indian reservation in one of the ten poorest counties in our nation (Eagle Butte, SD). Last year members of Messiah and other local supporters fulfilled wish letters for 600+ children!
Help us do it again! 

Will You Partner with Us and Reserve a Letter?  It is helpful and easy to do in advance by clicking the button below. You may also have received a reminder card in the mail informing you about this year’s toy drive.

Watch the 2014 videoPlease note that these children are just like ours in many ways.  You may see a higher cost item on their list.  It is not necessary to purchase every item on the list.  Whatever you can provide will be greatly appreciated!

Additional Details

Thank you so much for being involved.  Many people and children appreciate your gifts, your time and your prayers!
