The Navajo are suffering tremendously from the Covid-19 virus. It has been heart-breaking to hear of the rapidly growing number cases. On top of that, many elderly Navajo are living in extremely isolated and remote conditions. During the crisis, the support they normally receive from senior centers has been severely limited. Now many are in dire need.
We have sought partnership with the Navigators Organization (working out of Flagstaff, AZ). They are working with local partners on the Navajo reservation and delivering 600+ boxes of critically needed food and necessities to the most remote communities, and they are asking for help to continue. The next supply run is scheduled on May 13, and they will go again at the end of the month.
How can you help?
1. Donate Now
We welcome any amount as you can give.
($50 will fill up one box with food and supplies that will last two weeks)
A generous donor will match donations up to the first $1000. All of the money raised through this campain will be used to purchase necessities that go in the boxes. We will deliver the items to Flagstaff, AZ.
2. Canned food and basic supplies
If you live in Albuquerque and want to donate canned and other non-perishable food, we will come collect the items you want to donate.
Please email us: email@example.com
We will send you a list of items that go inside each box.
If enough of you can donate quickly, we plan to deliver the first load of supplies on May 9 or 10. If not, the next delivery will be two weeks later. Please consider giving now, or by May 21.
