Food Baskets for Elderly on Navajo Nation-Covid19

The COVID19 pandemic has hit the Navajo Nation especially hard and a peak in cases is expected in the next few weeks.  There is a shelter in place on the Navajo Nation and elderly are especially encouraged to stay home for their safety to reduce exposure.  See this recent link in the New York Times - https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/09/us/coronavirus-navajo-nation.html

Chinle Planting Hope is a local organization that works on different community development projects in Chinle, AZ, on the Navajo Nation. Chinle Planting Hope is currently focusing our efforts on vulnerable elderly and working with the Chinle Senior Center to help get hot meals and emergency food baskets to elderly in Chinle and surrounding reservation areas. We are buying extra aluminum trays for hot meals and assembling essential food boxes that can be delivered to Navajo grandma and grandpas that are quarantined, lack transportation or have extra needs during this stressful time for the next 3 to 4 months and beyond. 

This project with the Senior Center and elderly in the community is an extension of the ongoing work Chinle Planting Hope is already doing on the reservation through our Chinle Community Volunteer Team that runs each year.  Chinle Planting Hope has a long term commitment to serving in the Chinle community and is honored to help care for our precious Seniors at this difficult time. 

Please partner with us now to provide emergency food supplies during the pandemic and help strengthen the long term service work of Chinle Planting Hope and the Chinle Community Volunteer Team.   Thank you so much and stay healthy!
