This was posted by Susan Yazzie several weeks ago. I am sending to all in the community to let you know what happened to her sister’s family, very unfortunate. Please send prayers for the youngest son still in the hospital trying to recover with most of his body had been severely burned. To Native Community:
My name is Susan Yazzie and I am writing to you on behalf of my sister Jenny. She lives on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, with five boys. On Saturday morning, Saturday August 23, 2008, between 1:00-3:00 am in Seba Dakaii, her 5 bedroom trailer home was burned down to the ground, nothing was salvageable. Not only did they lose their home, but 3 boys were flown to Phoenix Burn center. As of now Keeto, 14, is released leaving Manuel, 15, still in the hospital. Keefred, 17, is in severe condition from smoke inhalation and recovering from the burns. My sister is a single parent who strives to work hard to support her kids. The fire has left nothing but ashes and memories for the family. The home is a total loss and all personal possessions, including clothing, furniture and so on were destroyed. Therefore they have no home to live in for the present being.
I am asking some help for her and her children. If you can offer something please contact me at 303-862-4097. Much needed items right now are clothing and perhaps gift cards from Walmart or other stores. Food items and volunteers for taco sale are welcome and needed.
Please contact Susan asap.
Donations needed for the taco sale: Lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, salsa, baked goods/ cookies, muffins, cakes, candy, soda pop/cans, bottled water, dried beans, aluminum foil, paper plates
