The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi this week made a donation of 1,000 Thanksgiving boxes to those in need. The distribution will be completed by the Food Bank of Northern Indiana through the St. Joseph County Pantry. Each Thanksgiving box includes a ham, stuffing, corn, a potato, cranberry jelly, and a pumpkin roll. Tribal Chair Matthew Wesaw says the Pokagons are proud to be able to help people in need during the holiday season. He says the Thanksgiving boxes will go to families in both southwest Michigan and northern Indiana.
