The Moab Rotary Club recently donated $450 and 50 facemasks to the Moab-based Full Circle Intertribal Center to help serve Native American communities that have been hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 virus.
“Times are still tough, but what we always can do is help and support one another, and Moab has always been very good at that,” said Rotary Club President Britta Kingsley. “Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self.” Anyone who would like to know more about Rotary can go to https://www.rotary.org/en and if they would like to see what the local club is doing, visit https://www.facebook.com/Moab-Rotary-Club-508972969207202/.

Said Kristen Ramírez Marsh, director of FCIC, ”Your monetary donation of $450 will help us purchase essential and traditional items for our FCIC stronghold COVID-19 relief program. These kits go out monthly to our native elders and families in Grand County. We plan on delivering over 50 kits for our June delivery. The 50 masks that you donated will go in the kits.”
The nonprofit FCIC is based in Moab. It is the first intertribal native-led nonprofit in Moab, and has been in existence for a year. “Our mission is to nourish healing though our Native American traditions and cultures, and to restore cultural continuity and vitality.
