Santa's Helpers are Volunteers that work Tirelessly to make sure as many 'New' Toys as possible are collected and delivered to the Turtle Mountain Reservation in North Dakota. After all Santa only places 'New' Toys under the tree. Santa's helpers drive over 1800 miles round trip to Turtle Mountain and back to Indianapolis. Driving thru Snow, sleet, and icy roads to assure that the toys reach the children by Christmas morning. Some years multiple vehicles have made the trip.
Toys have been collected each year for over 28 years and delivered to the children of Turtle Mountain Reservation. Some who may not have Christmas without the generous donations received and delviered.
Each year the amount of children helped is based on the donations received. Friends of Turtle Mountain has helped an average of 250-300 children each year open have a present under the tree Christmas morning. In 2019 FTI helped 359 children receive not only a toy under the tree but they also recieved a book and a Christmas stocking with misc items including a new pair of socks.
No matter how many toys we deliver there is always a need for more. With the help of donors like you we can reach out to as many children as possible.
