Blanket, Sleeping Bag and Children’s Coat Collection for St. Agnes in Manderson, South Dakota

We have been unable to send a team to the reservation since before the pandemic. We have remained in contact with Fr. Edmund and Joyce at St. Agnes, our twinning parish on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. They have identified a need for particular items. 

The request is for new and gently used blankets, sleeping bags and children’s winter coats. Storage on the reservation is limited; we want to honor and respect the request made of us. 

The collection ends this Sunday, September 25. Delivery to St. Agnes will be October 1. Please place your donations of blankets, sleeping bags, and children’s winter coats in the designated bin in the Gathering Area. Thank you!
