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

crackers

soup

flour and baking supplies

bottled water

coffee

paper towels

toilet paper

bleach

cleaning supplies e.g. Pine Sol

hand sanitizer, hand wipes

face masks

gloves

baby food

diapers

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.

  1. I worked as a nurse many years ago on the reservation and would like to help
    Can I mail you a check to be used to purchase for them?

  2. Hi Jane. You can mail a check or we will have a donation bucket available on Saturday from 3:00-6:00. If you write a check, you can make it out to Toyei Industries, which is the nonprofit that we are working with.

  3. May I have the complete address to help out with a check for the Navajo nation? Thank you, Tina
