Help Still Needed to Feed the Hungry!

We are in critical need for volunteers for our Summer Lunch Program.  This program is not possible without the help of many volunteers.  Please share and consider joining us this summer in blessing the lives of hundreds of children in need in our community!  Lunches are served at the 4 community sites below Monday through Friday beginning May 31 and ending August 1.  Volunteers are needed to help children with their lunches, talk with them while they eat on site, and help them clean-up.  It is a small time commitment with a big reward!

Give the Gift of Reading This Summer

You have likely heard about our widely successful Summer Literacy Program which was expanded this past school year to a year-round After School Tutoring Program.  Now is your chance to come see what the excitement is all about!  Come check out our 8-week program  held at Woodland and Adena Elementary Schools beginning June 5th. We would love to have one tutor for every student this summer!  Volunteers reinforce and encourage struggling Lakota readers in grades 1-6 by practicing phonics skills taught by certified teaching staff. The time commitment is 1 or 2 days week from 10-12:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for high school and college students to earn service hour credit.  Please contact us at to learn how you can help a child learn to read this summer.
