Yá'át'ééh abini! (Good morning in Diné)
Navajo and Hopi Families Covid-19 Relief has provided wholesome, healthy and sanitized food and essentials to more than 10,000 families, all via a no contact delivery system.
Our all volunteer-based grassroots movement has responded to those in vulnerable population areas, such as, elders, grandparents raising grandchildren, immune-compromised individuals, low income and single-parent families who reside in areas of the Navajo & Hopi reservations that do not always have paved roads or electricity or running water.
You contributions provide life-sustaining assistance during these challenging times and we are grateful to answer the call of our relatives, friends and family. Here you will find many photos that are a testimony of our efforts.
Your contributions are working to making a difference.

Ms. Jane Hyden, Seamster making masks

Our sewing division makes masks for food boxes. Some samples. This is how we package the masks for distribution. Washed and dried, then using a clean space, while wearing a mask and gloves, place 2 masks in each bag and insert hotline info. Once complete it is sent to our distribution leads and they place masks into the boxes for elders and families. If you are unable to complete the process, send to me or one of my sanitizing crews and we will complete the process.
Delivery of hospital gowns, scrub caps and masks to Northern Navajo Medical Center in Shiprock NM. Sewing was completed by Seamsters in New Mexico - Deb J Kizzia making the delivery. Cass NachosMom Gould and Redawn George assisted with this project.
