Deer Widows Show Donates to the Sault Ste. Marie Chippewa Tribe

TriPoint Church of God hosted their annual craft show calling it something different this year.

With men away hunting this weekend, the ladies of the church decided to name this year’s shopping day The Deer Widows Show.

There were over 40 vendors this year selling holiday items for a great cause. Kitchen manager, Kelly Peterson says the show was about shopping and donating coats to the Sault Ste. Marie Chippewa Tribe.

“It’s a poor area. They don’t have the funds to buy coats and so we take truckloads of coats, and boots, and mittens and hats for them so they can stay warm in the winter. We all know how cold the Sault gets in the wintertime. And that’s where our proceeds go…to buy the coats for them,” Peterson said.

The tribe will be getting adult and children coats, hats, boots and gloves for this winter.
