Thank You for Fostering our Children

The December 1-15 Fostering our Children drive at St. Croix Casino Turtle Lake was a big success. We collected more than 1,400 items from 714 contributors. Donated items will give our tribal foster children and their new foster families the help they need to get started on the right foot.
