Give the Gift of Hope

Kids with their stockings

The holiday season is a time of joyous celebrations filled with food, friends, and presents for millions — but not so for many Native Americans. Remembering Native American children and Elders will have a lasting impact that goes far beyond the holidays… just as our work throughout the year touches the lives of so many time and time again. Reservation programs look to us all year to lessen the hardships and improve quality of life on the reservations, and they are counting on us to do the same for the holidays. The most important thing we provide is hope.

It’s important that Native Americans be remembered, along with the rest of America. Please consider giving a gift to help spread Holiday cheer, and help us distribute needed items such as Christmas stockings, winter fuel, and food.

Once you've made your purchase, you'll be given the option of sending a Holiday eCard to loved ones to let them know a lasting gift has been made in their honor.

Gift products are presented for donation purposes only and are not available for individual sale. We apologize but only one honorary Holiday eCard is permitted per transaction. If you have more than one person to honor, please make separate donations.

Brighten a Child's Day - Give Them a Stocking
Santa handing out stockings is sure to bring a smile to a child's face. We deliver thousands of stockings filled with items like gloves, band-aids, toys, art supplies, treats and candy.* We know that this stocking may be the only gift a child receives, so we take special care in selecting items they will like. (* items may vary)

Bring a Community Together for a Holiday Meal
Many families who cannot afford to have special meals at home during the holidays are able to attend one of the community meals we sponsor. We provide the food. Community volunteers prepare, serve and clean up after the meal. The food includes items like turkey or ham, potatoes, cranberry sauce, baked beans, corn, and pie. * Our staff enjoy attending these meals to experience the strong sense of community and holiday spirit that is always present. (* items may vary)

Give a Baby Basket for a Strong Beginning
What a great gift for a new Native American mother and her baby as they start this new journey together! This wonderful baby basket gives them a strong foundation to begin their new lives. The items are stored in a baby bathtub and often include shampoo, baby wash, diaper cream, diapers, wipes, two sleepers, one handmade blanket, bottles and a toy.* Mothers are relieved to receive these items when their baby arrives, since many items are difficult to acquire on the reservation. (* Items may vary.)

Give the Gift of Heat
Through this service we offer Elders $100 vouchers towards their fuel bills during the winter. The vouchers are coordinated through local utility services and wood vendors, so that the Elders can determine if they want to use them for wood, propane, or electric heat. It gets extremely cold and windy on the Plains in the winter. Temperatures drop below freezing frequently. The winter winds can be brutal, blowing up to 60 miles an hour regularly, making the temperatures feel even colder. Because many of the homes are in poor repair, heating costs are higher. It takes more to heat a drafty house and with fuel costs continually rising, this voucher can mean the difference between warmth and bitter cold.

Keep an Elder Warm with a Winter Box
Winter can be brutal on Northern Plains' reservations. To help Elders and families prepare for severe cold weather, we provide winter readiness boxes. Each box contains blankets, scarves, gloves, candles, flashlight, batteries, ice melt and non-perishable food.* With this gift, they will be ready. (* Items may vary.)
