Want to join me in supporting a good cause?

Want to join me in supporting a good cause? This #GivingTuesday I’m raising money for Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community, and your help can make a difference. Whether you donate or share this fundraiser with your friends, anything helps. And on GivingTuesday Dec 1, Facebook will match $7 million in qualifying donations. Thank you for your support. I’ve included information about Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community below.

We bridge the gap between Indian and non-Indian communities. Our commitment to sustaining Dakota language and culture is our organization’s driving force. Our programs and events are open to the public. We encourage all people to learn and participate. We work collaboratively with; tribal, city, county and state governments, Native and non-Native non-profits, and grass root organizations on issues and initiatives that pertain to and affect Dakota and other Native peoples. We have been a community in the Mendota area for over 130 years. Visit our website https://mendotadakota.com/mn/ to learn more about us and our mission.

After discussion, MMDTC has decided to do a toy drive as usual.

After discussion, MMDTC has decided to do a toy drive as usual.
I realized it is a lot of work for me, but I want to do it for the children. I have been receiving many calls and emails from families in need of toys and gift cards.
We have received no toys yet. We have received a few gift cards.
Thank you, Karen, Jim, and Colleen for the gift cards.
We have a church that usually donates, I am working on that with Deborah.
All toys need to come to my home in Apple Valley.
If you plan to donate toys, make sure they are unwrapped so we can sort them.
Please do not forget the elders and teens.
Let’s not forget the homeless.
Please email us at mendotadakota@gmail in advance, I will give you my address.
We can hug through my front door haha we all need to be 100% covid-19 safe.
The deadline for drop off will be December 10th, and the deadline to pick up toys will be December 17th.
Thank you for your donations & helping families in need.
We will be mailing some toys out of state.
Harmony, joy and peace in this holiday season, under the circumstances.

We changed our minds about the toys drive. Just too many families need toys, we also need gift cards for elders and teens.

We changed our minds about the toys drive. Just too many families need toys, we also need gift cards for elders and teens. Getting lots of emails asking about the toys drive this year, the families we help every year need our help. These are terrible times, families need more help then ever.    I will send out an email to members today some time. We will help the most we can in a short time. I will take care of everything. I will have people come to my home, some can drop off toys at the office? But will have to be brought here. Because of covid we have to be careful.

Don’t send it to the office sent to my house. If you want to call me my number is 952-219-0196. Happy Holidays!!  Be safe.
So sad you can’t be with our family on Thanksgiving, maybe Christmas??  Newsletter will be out this week. I have had an MMDTC office here at home for years. The building we are renting is for sale, who knows how soon he will sell it. Then we move again, for the 8th time since 1995. When we move into the small office behind the post office. A place always came up for us to move and stay in Mendota thanks to the creator. There is nowhere in Mendota to rent anymore. We will keep you all posted. I will email the families we help, they will be happy. A lot of work, but worth it to see their faces again, oh no I wont see them this year. Covid needs to end. Love, John, Jason, Greg, Joe and Sharon.
