My name is Connie Rowden & I have been a supporter of St. Joseph Indian School for many years. They do amazing work out there with the children teaching them all they need to know to make it out in the world, as well as preserving their precious Native American customs & languages so they can be passed down from generation to generation so as not to be lost forever. They have so very little to sustain them in their everyday lives. It's as tho tho the world has completely forgotten them. Yet they somehow are the greatest at being the best stewards of the precious little money that comes their way. They have to be. My experience with the children & elders at St. Joseph are humble, appreciative & thankful for your donations that help them improve their way of life. Many have no heat, no running water, holes in the roofs & walls, dirt floors, & on & on. There is no reason for these proud people to have to live in these conditions in our United States of America where we have been Blessed. Please help where you can, give from your heart, they desperately need help, & there is no greater way to help than to donate to our Native Americans . This is something I feel very deeply about & carry in my heart everyday. Thank you. Connie Rowden
