We also recently completed the Third Annual Soaring Eagles 3on3 Hoopfest and raised over $1,600 thanks to all of our faithful volunteers!
In December, our volunteers completed our 2013 Christmas Trip during which we delivered an overloaded U-haul box truck with over 8,000 pounds of shoebox Christmas gifts, handmade quilts, toys, and winter gear for the people of Manderson and Wounded Knee. Our volunteers also accomplished a Community Feed event at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Manderson for over (300) local residents.
