Pendleton Blanket Sales Benefit American Indian Fund
April 7, 2011,
The first gift of more than $15,500 benefited the American Indiana College Fund and was generated by sales of blankets designed exclusively for the fund. It goes into the Pendleton Woolen Mills Tribal College Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships to American Indian students attending tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) in Washington and Montana.
The second gift of more than $83,800 will go to the Pendleton Endowment Tribal Scholars Program, which provides scholarships in perpetuity to Native American students attending TCUs throughout the United States.
Since 1995, Pendleton Woolen Mill's support of the American Indian College Fund has helped more than 400 students pursue higher education.
"We are always inspired by the individual stories of struggle and triumph of the students who receive the scholarships," said Robert Christnacht, manager of the Pendleton Home Division.
