Help us serve nutritious meals!
Pope Francis said, “Poverty calls us to sow hope…Poverty is the flesh of the poor Jesus, in that child who is hungry, in the one who is sick.” Experience the true spirit of Christmas by helping us serve good meals to Lakota kids, elderly folks and families. God will bless you for it.
We serve hot meals during the holidays in several communities around the Rosebud Reservation for the elderly and children who are out of school. With the help of volunteers the mission delivers food baskets to Lakota elders who become virtual shut-ins during our cold snowy winters – this costs approximately $25 per basket. We also provide a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack to the children in the Sapa Un Catholic academy–this costs $10 a day or $200 a month per student. We also provide a hot meal and snack to the children in our five Body Mind and Soul Summer programs. Your gift will help support these many nutrition programs we sponsor.
Pope Francis said, “Poverty in the world is a scandal. In a world where there is so much wealth, so many resources to feed everyone, it is unfathomable that there are so many hungry children, that there are so many children without an education, so many poor persons. Poverty today is a cry.” St. Francis Mission is responding to that cry in everything we do. Here’s how you can help:
- Donate $25 to create a food basket for a Lakota elder
- Donate $10 to feed a Sapa Un Academy student for one day
- Sponsor student meals for one month for $200
- Contribute any amount to help our feeding programs!
