Native American Family House Fire

Two weeks ago, the home of Frank and Rita LongJaw on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Montana was a total loss due to fire. This was a devestating loss as four generations, including numerous great-grandchildren as young as infant age, were sharing the home. 

The LongJaws were moved into another home on the Reservation by the Tribe, but this home was completely empty and unfurnished, and they only had the clothes on their back. The Red Cross and local charities assisted in meeting their needs, but they still lack some basic necessities.

This fundraiser will be held accountable by OneLife Church missions accounting and will provide tax deductible donation statements. Your donation will provide for remaining needs including:
- Box Springs
- Mattresses
- Bed Frames
- Sheets and Blankets
- Heaters
- Freezer
- Dressers

Any excess funds will provide coats and winter clothes for the children of the family. We will purchase the items via Walmart.com to take advantage of free shipping to Billings, MT and then personally deliver them to the family. 

All donors will receive updates - including photos - of the delivery.
