Pine Ridge is one of the poorest places in the United States, with over 90% living below the poverty line and a life expectancy rate that is one of the lowest in the western hemisphere. For many years, Platte Woods UMC has been building relationships, and providing hope and encouragement.
We have participated in annual mission trips, during which we provide support for local organizations and ministries. We also connect with the people of Pine Ridge (especially children) through interactive activities, and learning about the culture and history of the Lakota people.
During our trips, the main focus is to organize and facilitate the Summer Kids Club which takes place in the local park. During the summer camp, youth and children participate in craft activities, play games, skateboard, etc.
This June, we will host a serve event at PWUMC where volunteers will put together craft kits that will be used for summer kids club. During this event, we will have a brief presentation explaining our mission work in Pine Ridge and will have Indian Tacos for lunch!
We are accepting donations of sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and markers for this project.
