District Superintendent and Mission Strategist Rev. Matt Ashley, staff to our Conference Committee on Native American Ministries, along with myself, hope that you will consider this request to assist our region’s Native Americans. As received from the Maricopa County Community Organizations Active in Disaster:
The Navajo Nation and other tribal members have been housed in substance abuse facilities in the Phoenix Valley that have come under current investigation. As a result, approximately 5,000 tribal members, the majority Navajo, will be released from facilities in the Phoenix area.
The Navajo Nation has requested 150 hygiene kits with assorted hygiene products, including feminine hygiene products and 50 cases of water. The delivery address would be 4520 N. Central Ave, Suite 300, Phoenix, AZ 85012.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. Gabriel Wright will be happy to answer any questions you may have:
