Coats, school supplies, food being collected

A local volunteer group, Friends of American Indians on Reservations (FAIR), is collecting non-perishable food, school supplies and winter coats for Native Americans. The goods will aid Lakota families on Pine Ridge Reservation in Oglala, S.D., many of whom lost everything in a June 4 tornado.

Dug Steele, who retired from U.Va.'s Radiology department in June, founded FAIR in 1991. He and his wife, Pat, who still works in Radiology, collect donations each year and take their own vacation time to drive the goods to people of the Navajo and Sioux tribes. This year, the truck will leave Sept. 9.

Anyone who would like to make a donation can call 971-7105 or 924-9377 to arrange for a pick-up.
