Delivery to Passamaquoddy Reservation

Wolf and Laura Freeman forwarded me these pictures and an update of their latest collection of quilts, blankets and clothing:
 
On Monday 11/17, Wolf and I drove to Pleasant Point in Perry, ME to deliver everything we collected to the Passamaquoddy reservation.
 
We received many requests to support our local Native Americans, so we located a local reservation in need here in Maine. They were very appreciative and overwhelmed with what we had collected. They told us that they recently had three tribal homes burn. Everyone is okay, but one of the homes had a family with an expecting mother. Fortunately we had collected many infant clothes. The tribe is in much need of coats for the winter and monetary donations to pay for heating oil. Wolf and I are discussing how we want to do a fundraiser to collect money to send them.
 
I have attached a few pictures. We were promised many more pictures when the quilts and other items are distributed.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Gathering of Eagles Ministry quilt drive to support our Native people.

If you are interested in donating quilts, blankets or new or gently used items of clothing, please contact Laura at wolfandlaura@hotmail.com
