Proud of Our Partnership With Native Americans
We have always been proud of our partnership with Native Americans, but today, we further proclaim it by announcing our new organizational name: Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA). Our new name better portrays our purpose and helps us raise awareness of the needs on the reservations we serve.
Effective today, we begin using our new name and logo on all communications. Our website is www.nativepartnership.org. Our email addresses that previously used @nrc1.org or @nrcprograms.org will now use @nativepartnership.org. Our office addresses and phone numbers will remain the same, as will the people you deal with in our organization.
Our key objective is for our new name to convey the long-term, collaborative relationships that exist between our organization and the reservation communities we serve, along with the spirit of partnership we have with those who help aid the reservations. It is important our name be easily recognizable and associated with our mission.
With the launch of our new name, we’re also launching the 100-day Supply Drive to Serve Native Americans living on remote and isolated reservations. We are calling upon corporations, foundations and individuals to help meet the critical needs of Native Americans who suffer the highest poverty in the U.S. yet receive less than one percent of the nation’s charitable giving. Many Americans are unaware of the challenging conditions on reservations today and how hard tribal community members work to improve the quality of life for their tribes while preserving their culture. Through our national supply drive, we hope to collect needed goods and shed light on the realities facing a quarter of a million Native Americans in our service area.
PWNA’s 100-day supply drive focuses on everyday items that address essential needs and low access to food, healthcare, education, animal welfare and household goods. These critical supplies are unavailable or unaffordable in the tribal communities we serve and are needed in high-volume, bulk donations, along with funding to transport the goods to 60 U.S. reservations. To learn more, visit our PWNA supply drive page and watch our video, “Life on the Reservation.” There are many ways to get involved!
We appreciate all of the support our partners, donors and volunteers have given the past 25 years with National Relief Charities, and we look forward to many impactful years moving forward as Partnership With Native Americans. We encourage you to connect with us on social media, spread the word about our supply drive and include our hashtag, #NativePartnerHOPE.
