Lakota families in need of gas cards for transportation to and from school
One of most challenging obstacles for some Lakota families in need is simply getting their children to and from school when bussing is not an option. When is bussing not an option? When a child is sick and needs to be picked up from school, when a child misses the bus, when the bus is late or unable to make their route and for those students in 10-12 grade bussing is simply not available. With high gas prices compounded by parents missing work/wages to get their kids to/from school, one of the biggest needs are $20-$25 dollar gas cards to assist families when situations arise.
