The Native American Heritage Foundation (NAHA) is a Good360 nonprofit partner that provides resources to people living on Reservations in South Dakota and Wyoming. Because most Reservations are located several hours from major cities, it can be difficult for families to access everyday items such as hygiene products, appliances, and other essentials.
After receiving a significant contribution from Toys for Tots through their partnership with Good360, NAHA delivered various games, arts and crafts, stuffed animals, and more to Pine Ridge Village. While there, team members and volunteers at NAHA distributed multiple toys to each child to take home and enjoy.
One little boy, *Jack, who recently finished cancer treatment, attended the Pine Ridge Village distribution event with his father. Jack couldn’t hide his excitement after getting two brand-new Lego sets. His dad was even more ecstatic because, with the help of NAHA, he helped provide his son with toys that will help bring joy and restore normalcy to Jack’s life.
“Everyone who received toys was overwhelmed by the generosity of this donation,” said Erin Hibb, Treasurer and Secretary at NAHA. “It’s an amazing way to start the holiday season. With the items provided by Toys for Tots, we can help people who truly need and appreciate these toys.”
Another recipient was a little girl named *Lucy, who has special needs. Although she couldn’t attend the distribution event, NAHA ensured she still received a Lego toy set to enjoy for herself.
“It’s nice to be able to help so many kids with diversified needs,” said Erin. “Thank you, Toys for Tots and Good360, for your incredible work!”
Toys for Tots is committed to providing joy to families by providing access to toys and alleviating the stress that comes with providing gifts for their children during the holidays.
