Every year we ask our members to bring items to share with those in need. For the children, please bring winter hats, mittens, or a new toy. For the adults, please bring a non-perishable food item, household goods, or toiletries. These items will be delivered to families in need on nearby reservations.

Our annual tradition is to have every person or family who attends the Holiday Party to make a special ornament for our Christmas Tree. We will take turns sharing the meaning of the ornament and hang it on the tree. Our 'Spirit Tree" will stay decorated until after the holidays, on display at the Nature Center. We hope you will each participate in decorating our SOARRING Family tree.
