Our Navajo Nation Student Blanket & Clothing Drive
Student Winter Blanket, Quilt and Clothing Drive
Thanks to the generosity of so many of you we now have a truck load of blankets, quilts (new and used) and jackets/boots/hats/gloves to deliver to Tsaile and Many Farms Schools, as well as other families in the Navajo Nation the week of the 16th. They have already had snow, temperatures way below freezing, so these will be so welcomed!
The latest report from leaders of the Native American Baha’i Institute Youth Group tells us that their fourteen teams of young people, from middle school to age twenty-eight, have traveled many miles, cut, delivered and stacked 150 loads of wood for stoves to keep people warm over the winter, fixing chimneys and stoves in the process. With your help we contributed funds for equipment to help them expand their teams of kids for this amazing work, supporting their community and building relationships, including many elders who live far out.
If you are able to help by making a donation for our ongoing work with the Navajo Nation, please click the link to sign up, and we will send you information. We have received such warm appreciation for our assistance – one auntie thinks of us as her “guardian angels.” UUCP is full of warm hearts and helping hands – Thank you for your generosity!
