NAMA committed to assisting throughout winter season

Dear Editor

The Native American Music Association, N.A.M.A., a non profit 501(c)(3), (Fed Id# 13-4032761) is heeding the requests of NAMAPAAH Radio and is joining in the effort to provide emergency clothing, and heating/utility assistance for the elders, children, the disabled, and the sick on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge reservations in South Dakota throughout this winter season.

N.A.M.A. is calling upon its international membership to make a donation in which ALL funds will go directly to providing clothing to local churches and schools on the reservations as well as emergency heating/utility assistance determined by the application process of the Link Center Foundation’s primary program. N.A.M.A. is also building a task force consisting of winners, nominees & volunteer staff in South Dakota to assist in filing emergency applications for those most in need of heat and winter clothing on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations.

The current goal is to raise over $15,000 in donations which will provide all current application approved households with several weeks of emergency propane and winter clothing. Fuel vendors will be paid directly.

A list of ministries, churches and schools to directly send clothing, blankets, boots, etc is available by request via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Let’s help ASAP. It is just unacceptable to have third world country conditions in the middle of America! We need to help them not only during this crisis, but throughout the entire winter season.

Please make a donation by clicking the donate button on the Native American Music Awards’ website, “Special Programs” page.
