A Christmas blessing for an Elder and her granddaughter

One Spirit | Pine Ridge, SD
This lovely elder volunteers her time at one of the Churches on the reservation. She works Monday through Friday putting together lunch bags of sandwiches, fruits, chips/cookies, to distribute to the homeless community in Pine Ridge, which may be their only meal of the day. They also have what they call the "Rummage Room" where they sort donations of clothes, shoes, blankets, etc. for rummage sales but due to COVID they haven't been able to do so. Instead, they now open that up to the homeless population to come and get whatever they may need during these troubling times.

She would love to have a turkey roaster so that she can use to make hot meals for the homeless come winter time. Her granddaughter is 13 and loves to make Barbie clothes. They have been looking for Barbie Doll clothes patterns but have not had much luck. She's a very good seamstress according to Grandma.
