O'odham VOICE Against the WALL Holiday Toy and Childrens Clothing Drive was a great success.
It was with the support of local Why Not Travel Store in Why, Arizona, General Manager Bernadette Nez, a friendly exuberant woman.
Nez took the initiative to call and extend her welcome to be a drop-off site for donations for toys and blankets for Elders. She also posted the information on the store facebook.
This was with the combined effort of 3nations Market ARTs owner Victor Garcia, a constant supporter, where there was also a drop-off site for toys and childrens clothes.
3nations collected 3 large bags of excellent wear clothing and $100 in donations.
Thanks as well to Ajo Copper News for running a front page article.
Great efforts by long time ally Censored News, Brenda Norrell, for her effort to post an article on her blog.
Great success, wonderful for the children.
Appreciation from our grassroots group here on O'odham lands. Many Mother Earth Blessings to all that supported this effort.
There's still time to share the joy. Donate items tomorrow, Dec. 15, or donate to Paypal.
