The Diné (Navajo) community is being devastated by COVID-19. In addition to many people with health challenges that make them at high risk for infection and death, the Navajo Nation is an extreme food desert with little access to food and to water. With 1/3 of Navajo residents not having running water, many people living in one home, and lack of personal protective equipment, the need for help is great. UUFD is hosting a supply drive for most needed items, which will be taken directly to the homes of families and individuals in need in the Navajo Nation.
MOST-NEEDED ITEMS INCLUDE:
canned veggies e.g. green beans, corn, peas
canned fruit e.g. peaches, pears, oranges
pork and beans, pinto beans
canned meat e.g. corn beef hash, Vienna sausages, spam
ramen noodles, pasta
flour and baking supplies
cleaning supplies e.g. Pine Sol
hand sanitizer, hand wipes
dog and cat food
fresh food e.g. cheese, meat, produce (place in separate bag or box marked as “Fresh Food”)
Sponsored by UUFD’s Healing Racism
and Basic Needs justice teams.
