Already this holiday season, Conscious Alliance delivered donations collected during their 4th Annual Turkey n’ Trimmings holiday food drive. This year, the organization collected upwards of 2,500 holiday turkey boxes and have also expanded outreach to include additional communities in South Dakota and Montana, and in New Mexico and Louisiana as well. In 2006, Conscious Alliance distributed approximately 1,000 holiday turkey boxes to people in need in South Dakota and Montana.
Conscious Alliance’s Youth Against Hunger project (YAH) offers exciting alternative service-learning experiences for college students during their fall/spring breaks. YAH synthesizes service learning by combining education and hands-on service. The inaugural YAH trip took place October 21-26, 2007, with students from Warren Wilson College (Asheville, NC) participating. YAH students learned about hunger related issues, as well as Lakota culture, by providing compassionate cross-cultural community service on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. While on the reservation, students lodged with community leaders Floyd and Natalie Hand, as they sorted and distributed food to community members in need, aided with home repairs for Lakota families, participated in educational sessions with Lakota elders, and communicated with Pine Ridge college students and peers about current cultural, social, economic, and environmental issues. Conscious Alliance’s YAH provides students with the knowledge and support they need to return to their respective communities and, using the skills they have acquired, create positive change in their local communities. The next YAH trip will take place in spring 2008.
