The California Valley Miwok Tribe located at 10601 Escondido Pl., Stockton, CA 95212 (as listed in the Federal Register) held this month’s distribution on July 6th 2010, between the hours of 1:00 – 2:30pm. We thank Ronald Buckman of the Tule River Food Distribution staff for his timely update that allowed the Tribe to notify all recipients as to the distributions date change due to the July 4th holiday weekend. This distribution found the weather to be hot and was felt by all present. Sadly, we saw some recipients attend for the last time, but hope the best for them with their recent good fortune. The program helped them through their hard times and they expressed their gratitude.
However, for everyone whom leaves there are always others in need and we saw some new faces whom were happy to find a program such as this even existed. The program is as always a continuing success and the Tule River Tribal Food Distribution staff have made implementing this program an enjoyable experience for the California Valley Miwok Tribe working closely with us to serve the needs of our local Native American community.
