The St. Thomas Lakota Indian Initiative is collecting new and gently used sports equipment and board games and puzzles (all pieces included, please). These will be taken to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and used during the Vacation Bible School sponsored by St. Agnes Parish in Manderson, SD in July.
Sports equipment needed includes bats and gloves, balls of all kinds, frisbees, jump ropes, etc. The age range for St. Agnes’ Vacation Bible School is 5 to 12 years old.
Items can be donated anytime between June 17 and June 30 and can be placed in the marked bins in the Narthex and Gathering Area.
A small team from St Thomas will be traveling to the reservation to deliver the toys and help out with the Vacation Bible School. This will be St. Thomas’ second trip to the reservation and a way to continue building a relationship with the people in the parish of St. Agnes and the surrounding area.
