A note from Larry (Lash):
After 12 years of leading the Toy Drive, it's time for me to turn the reigns over to someone new. I'll still remain the president and on the board of directors, but the seasonal fundraising efforts and delivery will be handled by our new vice president, Tom Render. Tom has been a huge supporter of the Toy Drive from the beginning and has been on most of the toy delivery trips with me. He is of Lakota heritage and, like me, he spends a lot of time on the rez and has a personal connection with the people. He is also a faculty member in the University of Nebraska at Omaha Native American Studies Program. Although I will be very sad when the truck heads to Pine Ridge and I'm not behind the wheel, I'm very excited to have Tom on board to continue all the good work we've done so far.
About the Toy Drive
The Toy Drive for Pine Ridge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that collects and delivers toys for children of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and raises donations for heating, clothing, food, and educational resources for residents of the reservation.
The toy drive started in 2003 with Larry Dunn – an Omaha musician also known as Lash LaRue – a friend and a small pick-up truck.Continue reading: About Us
