Coastal Carolina Indian Center
Porcupine Coat & Blanket Drive

Porcupine Blanket & Coat Drive

     The Tuscarora Center of North Carolina in conjunction with the Coastal Carolina Indian Center is proud to sponsor the Porcupine Coat & Blanket Drive.

Porcupine is a small community on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota. A majority of the residents of Porcupine-- and Pine Ridge live in absolute poverty. Many homes have dirt floors and no heat-- which doesn't make the brutal winters the folks on the reservation have to deal with very easy to bear. (For more information about the destitute situation at Pine Ridge, click here.)

How can you help? Simple!

Please gather together any new and/or clean, gently used coats, sweaters, blankets, gloves, scarves and even portable heaters, and send them to:

Coastal Carolina Indian Center
P.O. Box 4581
Emerald Isle, NC 28594-4581
