We could not be more proud of this student-led donation drive for our community! Our band students, alumni, and community all contributed over 2500 items to be donated through Reach Out Lakota! These students banded together in the best way possible! They used their passion, their drive, and their determination to reach and even exceed a goal! Don’t be surprised if this becomes and annual event to to help our community!
