This Thanksgiving Season we will be hosting our 9th Annual Holiday Meal Delivery, taking place November 15-18, 2012. Our goal is to distribute over 10,000 meals to local families in need in the Greater Denver area, as well as households on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana, which are among the poorest communities in the United States.
Many people are unaware of the conditions on these reservations. The unemployment rate is consistently over 80% on Pine Ridge, primarily due to the extreme economic isolation of the reservation. Food insecurity is rampant. The climate is extreme in this region of the country, with regular winter blizzards and temperatures annually falling to -20°F or lower. In the winter, people make a very real choice between buying food and buying fuel to heat their homes.
Conscious Alliance strives to alleviate the immediate need for the basic necessities of life, while simultaneously teaming up with community leaders to create possibilities for the future. As we provide food to the reservations, we are working with these leaders to inspire members of the community, with particular focus on positive youth outreach programs to empower the next generation.
Through your donation, there is an incredible opportunity to help bring food and nourishment to some of the most impoverished communities in our nation during the cold winter months.
