CRYP School Supplies Drive 2022
Help us provide school supplies and backpacks for our CRST elementary, middle, and high school students by Friday, August 5, 2022
School Supplies Drive
Here on the Cheyenne River Lakota Nation, children are eagerly anticipating the start of the new school year. It’s special this year, because after a year of remote schooling and the fear and uncertainty around Covid-19, they are going back in person. And all of us at the Cheyenne River Youth Project want to make sure our kids have a happy and successful 2022-23 school year.
One thing is certain: To start their new school year the right way, children must have all the school supplies they need.
Unfortunately, many Lakota families struggle to find room in their household budgets to accommodate this critical need.
That’s where CRYP comes in. For decades, we have assisted children and families as they embark on a new school year. This year, in addition to providing school supplies and backpacks to our Family Services members, we also will be connecting with teachers in our schools across the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation to fulfill specific classroom needs. In this way, we can reach as many children as possible.
Help us provide school supplies and backpacks for our CRST elementary, middle, and high school students by Friday, August 5, 2022. You can “Sponsor A Child,” or you can make purchases directly from our Amazon wish list!
