Donation and Distribution: Backpacks
8/25/17 under General News Schools & Youth Center
This summer Running Strong’s StudyStrong backpack kits were distributed to help prepare Native Youth for the upcoming school year!
Several our Year 3 Dreamstarters helped distribute backpack kits. Shayleena Britton and Caitlin Bordeaux gave away 400 kits filled with school supplies. Stephan Cheney and his Bear River Band Youth-Program had a back to school event where he distributed 300 backpacks!
Nicole Ebsen, a mother of 3, had some wonderful comments to say about receiving StudyStrong kits.
“We are so lucky to have this program donate to our community. They really have provided so much. They have helped ease some of the expenses the beginning of the school year can bring. Almost all the students have benefited one way or another from their generosity.”
In total, we have distributed 4,915 StudyStrong kits this summer and we couldn’t have done it without the support from our donors, thank you!

Emergency Assistance Seasonal Programs on 4/9/14
A couple of weeks ago the Running Strong Headquarter Office was able to meet with our field staff. The staff from our field office at Pine Ridge Tipi Waste was among our out of town visitors. We had the pleasure to hear first hand about one of Running Strong’s many programs, the Heat Match Program.

The Heat Match started last month, and Pine Ridge Field Coordinator Dave Lone Elk recently found time between helping families to give us a quick update.
