COVID-19 Relief for the Navajo Heartland

by | May 27, 2020 | Mission Opportunities

Fountain Hills – The Fountain Hills Interfaith Alliance is partnering with the LDS Churches of the Valley to collect much-needed non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products to benefit those who are suffering from the impact of COVID-19 in the most vulnerable, rural areas of the Navajo Heartland.

On Saturday, May 30, between 8:00 AM and 12 noon, you’re encouraged to bring your donation of non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products to The Fountains’ United Methodist parking lot at 15300 N Fountain Hills Blvd. in Fountain Hills. You’ll find a list of specific needs at tinyurl.com/navajoheartland. If it’s easier for you to make a financial donation, you can do so by choosing “Navajo Heartland” at give.weputlovefirst.org.

As the Navajo Nation has passed New York with the per capita number of people diagnosed with COVID-19, their infrastructure and human capital are strained to the breaking point. With limited access to water, almost no internet, and basic health care hours and hours away, even pre-pandemic everyday life for many Navajos was a challenge. Now, it’s hard to imagine. Please join us in helping in this one small way. Your generosity in contributing to facilitating this critical relief effort is much appreciated.

For more information call 480.837.7627 – or visit our Just Serve page: tinyurl.com/navajoheartland. Thanks to the many volunteers at the LDS churches of the valley and The Fountain Hills Interfaith Alliance for help in coordinating this effort.
