One Spirit Service Coordinators live in various parts of the US and Europe. Through their use of telephones, computers, web cams, technology and visits to the Reservation, they are able to learn about and become friends with the Lakota, help sponsors understand the Lakota culture (and vice versa), and help meet the needs of Lakota families and elders for food, heat, and urgent situations. While doing these things, they are also an integral part of helping OS meet the goal of ending hunger on the Reservation and providing for the youth.
Making the list more userfriendly
Listen to the Voice of a Lakota Elder
The call from this elder touched our hearts and made the day special for all who work on the food program. We wanted all who donate and make this food possible to also hear her message. It is calls like this and seeing the faces of people on the food routes or who walk into the building that makes all of us understand the reason for what we do. To the food workers, "it makes us feel like superheroes - that's what we are to them."
From one of the delivery drivers, "It feels so good delivering to all the people I know that are without food and making a difference. They are so glad to see us."
From the hearts of the Lakota people and all of One Spirit, we humbly thank all who help make the food possible.
