My pod partner in crime Kendall Jane and I welcome Lash and Josh into the studio to talk about the Pine Ridge Toy Drive, now in its 5th year. It's the first Christmas themed show of the year and it's a very special one. Read below to learn more about this toy drive and how you can help make some amazing kids very happy...
The Toy Drive for Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is back! Since 2003, Omaha rockabilly musician Larry Dunn has organized a toy drive for the children of the Porcupine District of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. According to the 2000 census, Pine Ridge’s Lakota Sioux community is one of the most poverty stricken communities in the United States. The children of the reservation are desperately in need of some sunshine and cheer, especially during a time of cold, harsh winds and immense desolation like winters on the reservation can be. The majority of gifts for the children are collected at benefit concerts put on by Omaha-area musicians. READ MORE HERE
