2009 Social Services Christmas Project Saved!
Thanks to the quick actions and generous donations from Eagle Sun, Inc., Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association, Osage Nation Million Dollar Elm Casino in Skiatook, the Office of the Principal Chief of the Osage Nation, private individuals, and the local Marine’s Toys for Tots Program, every single Osage child on the caseloads of the Social Services Department was provided with Christmas gifts and clothing. Additionally, our foster and adoptive family resources received food baskets to ensure each home was able to have a Christmas dinner for their families.
It is a heartwarming experience to shop, prepare and deliver these gifts to the children who are not able to spend the holidays with their parents and maybe their siblings too. These children are always so thankful and extremely delighted to know that the Osage Nation is able to take care of them during the holiday season.
The Social Services Department staff extends our sincere appreciation to all who stepped forward to help out. We also want to wish all a Blessed and Happy Holiday!
