Recent Events

The Board of Missions celebrated Mother’s Day last spring by continuing ECC’s support of hawkwing hawkwing is a Native American non-profit organization created by Rochelle Ripley to assist the people of the Lakota (Sioux) Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota.  We collect coats for the Lakota people all year long.

Beginning May 1 st , Missions sold cards for Mother’s Day in honor of, or in memory of, a loved one.  For a donation of $5, members received a card which explained how the donations are used to help the women of the Reservation.  Upon receipt of the funds, Rochelle purchased selected items for women from a clearing house she often uses that were then shipped directly to the Reservation.

Our donations make it possible for hawkwing to support the Lakota people, who live a very hard life and have very little.
