Navajo and Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief has been hard at work strategizing on how to reach our most rural communities across Navajo and Hopi Nations while keeping everyone safe. This week we had our first distribution to the Pinon community! A total of 110 boxes of food and water were unloaded, sanitized, packages and delivered by volunteers from the Pinon Community and Chapter.

Volunteers received the required safety training that we conduct before any distribution can begin that falls in line with the Navajo Nation safety protocols. After their training was complete they sanitized, packaged and delivered 110 boxes of food for the elders and struggling families in Pinon area.
Relief includes water from Native Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa known as Aquaman in movies. 

Pinon volunteers and chapter staff were incredible and easy to work with! Thank you so much to them for making this happen. Thank you to Jonathan Allen (Pinon Community Lead), Vanessa Tullie, Jessica Stago for working so well together to bring essential water and food to elders and struggling families.
