🚨 CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS 🚨
White Earth Nation has put out a call for homemade face masks for patients coming in and out of facilities and programs, inpatients and nursing home residents. We have been in touch with the White Earth Emergency Management Team and would love to come alongside them in this way. If you are making masks for your loved ones and communities, would you also consider donating some to our friends in White Earth to help meet this need?
If you live in Illinois, Nebraska or elsewhere, you can mail them directly to the White Earth Emergency Management Team instead of sending them to us to distribute (although, in this time of social distancing, we’d love to hear from you and see photos of the masks you’ve made). It might be nice to include a note of encouragement, letting team members know you heard about the need for masks from Hope for the First Nations so they aren’t wondering where all these random masks are coming from.
Here is the address where you can send masks:
Shooting Star Casino
777 SE Casino Rd.
Mahnomen, MN 56557
If you live near the reservation, you can call the one-call number at 218-936-2774 to arrange for pickup, or you can drop off masks in the collection bin at Shooting Star Casino.
Thank you so much for partnering with us in this way. Stay healthy and know that we are praying for you!
