Educational Toy Drive for Kids at Pyramid Lake Paiute Reservation.

Native Solidarity Project is excited to announce “Learn By Playing,” a new partnership with the Intertribal Council of Nevada (ITCN) aiming to enrich their Head Start Program with educational toys, books and teaching resources donated by members of the Burning Man community.

Head Start is a program that provides early childhood education and care to preschool age children. ITCN manages eleven Head Start classrooms for Native American children, helping them develop the skills they need to succeed in school and in life.

Native Solidarity Project is encouraging Burning Man participants who travel through the Pyramid Lake Paiute Reservation to donate Educational Toys & Books for children up to age 12 on their way into the event. ITCN will distribute donations according to age and need to the appropriate local tribal school. If you have questions about what type of items we are looking for, please contact Margaret Gunshows from ITCN Head Start at ‭+1 (775) 530-5518‬ or mgunshows@itcn.org

If you are planning to attend Burning Man, please consider donating an educational toy at one of the following Toy Drive Drop Off Locations on your way into the event:
