Do You Have a Camera That You're No Longer Using? Donate it to St. Joseph's Indian School!

Do You Have a Camera That You're No Longer Using?   Donate it to St. Joseph's Indian School!


     My wife and I have been supporters of  St. Joseph's Indian School, located on the Missouri River in  Chamberlain, South Dakota, for over 3 decades.  We've visited St. Joseph's a number of times, either when vacationing in the West ... or  just loaded up with donated supplies for the school.  

     There's something being stored for St. Joseph's somewhere in our home at almost any given time.  Whether it's Campbell's Soup Labels, Box Tops for Education, school supplies, clothing, bedding, toys, or general pharmacy supplies for one of the 20 homes found on campus ... we've probably collected it for this amazing school at one point or another.

     In one of the latest school newsletters we received, St.
Joseph's made a plea for help.  Art classes are very important to the children at St. Joseph's Indian School.  Art is one way that they learn about their heritage and then are able to express it.

     Right now, St. Joseph's is in need of gently-used point and shoot digital cameras for the children to use in their art projects.  I thought ... "what group of people would be more likely to have this equipment available than those in the real estate fields and those on ActiveRain?" 

     What cameras are needed? 

  •    Gently used, point and shoot digital cameras
  •    Cameras that include cords, software and user’s manuals
     If YOU have an old, gently used camera (or more than one) lying around, and you would consider donating it to the children at St. Joseph's, please send it to:
 Attn: Camera Project
PO Box 89,  220 N Main St
Chamberlain, South Dakota 57325


     Should you live or do business within New Lenox, the Lincoln-Way/Will County/Chicago Southland region ... and have cameras you'd like to donate, please feel free to drop them off at my office located at:  318 Alana Drive, New Lenox ... I'll be happy to collect and ship them to St. Joseph's for you.  

     I know the children will say ... "Pilamaya" ... thank you for any cameras and donations you send their way! 

     If interested in learning more about St. Joseph's Indian School, the Lakota children that attend the school, and the good deeds that St. Joseph's does, please follow St. Joseph's on  Facebook ... or go to:  www.stjo.org.  I think you'll fall in love with the children and come to agree that St. Joseph's is one amazing place.

     Hope you enjoy the video below and come away inspired by all the things that St. Joseph's Indian School does for their children. 


     If I can answer any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me for info ... plus ...

     Please pass this info on to all you know, so that they too can donate, should they have a camera ... 

Thank you!
