Swinomish: Donations rolling in for Pine Ridge and Rosebud

Donations are rolling in for Pine Ridge and Rosebud
By Robin Carneen

Owner Sean Skiles with two of the Pioneer Market Staff from La Conner WA donate new children's T-shirts, adult sweatshirts and some food items to send back to Rosebud & Pine Ridge, SD. They have many Swinomish Indian Tribal community customers. They were quick to donate a box of these items.

TYMMC- TBGC member Dustin Chrisman(volunteer) inventories & sorts out incoming donations at the TBGC. Dustin also helped wash & dry clothes that needed it- and we are asking for folks to bring in clean ones from now on. To save in the work ahead as more donations come in.

More donations will be coming in tomorrow from the Tulalip Tribes. Others have been emailing and phoning the Tulalip Boys & Girls Club to arrange to drop off their donations by Friday.

Need is immediate.
