GENERAL CONVENTION OF SIOUX YMCAS
Native American Ys were first started in 1879. Today the Sioux Y is one of the two Ys remaining on reservations. The YMCA OF GREATER OKLAHOMA CITY first started supporting the Sioux Y financially in 1994. Since then, we have collected various sports equipment and program supplies to be used in their summer day camps and at their Camp Leslie Marrowbone. A group from the YMCA OF GREATER OKLAHOMA CITY has traveled to South Dakota three times in the past four years to help with construction projects. We're also providing two international camp counselors from Brazil to work in their camp program. Bill Townsend, International Committee member, has served on their Board of Trustees since the early 1990s, and educates our committee of their needs.
Please know that 100% of your contribution will be used for the Sioux YMCA.
