Friends of Turtle Island, Inc. is a 501 (c) not-for-profit organization working to help children. All members of Friends of Turtle Island, Inc. are volunteers. 100% of all donations go to helping children.
Toys for Turtle Mountain is our main program.
As Santa's helpers we collect “New” toys and
take to Turtle Mountain Reservation to place under the tree on Christmas
morning. Volunteers drive the 1800-mile round trip to deliver donated toys to
volunteers that live on the Turtle Mountain reservation and work with families
in need all year round.
Friends of Turtle Island, along with other
volunteers have worked to put smiles on the face of children for over 28 years.
When the children receive toys, they are
receiving something they would otherwise do without. Friends
of Turtle Island believes every child deserves a toy they can call their own. By giving toys to the children, we are
helping parents, grandparents and guardians too. They can concentrate more on
heat, food and clothing and not be burdened with whether they can afford
Christmas for their children.
We are trying to make the impossible, possible
by giving 'Hope to the hope of our world, The children.'
