Man donates money for children’s home in Pine Ridge

RAPID CITY, South Dakota (AP) - A Michigan man has pledged to donate as much money as needed to build a 40-bed children’s home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Officials involved in the project say the home would likely cost nearly $1 million. Officials say foster care is needed if children must spend the night away from their parents, which often happens when parents are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol when children are in the vehicle. The new home would be for children up to 12 years old because there already is an emergency home on the reservation for older children. Officials say the Michigan man funding the project wants to remain anonymous.
