Thank You: 1,000 Households Have Heat

2/26/15 in Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota under Emergency Assistance Seasonal Programs




Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota

Our Emergency Heat Match Program was a great success this year!

The heat match program, which ran from mid-January to mid-February this year, helps families to stay warm through the bitterly cold Plains winters.

It was another cold winter this year, with temperatures below freezing every single day.

With the help of friends like you, Running Strong matched funds that Pine Ridge families put toward heat, so that they could buy propane or electric heat for their homes.

Nearly 1,000 Pine Ridge households were helped, with $90,000 matched! Thank you!
