The Grand County Family Support @ The Christmas Box House would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful community we live in for their generous donations to help serve our neighbors living on the Navajo Reservation during this difficult time they are experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic. They have struggled to make ends meet with just about every aspect of their way of life.
It was interesting to see what everyone came up with and the people appreciated everything. Donations are still being accepted as they are not through the crisis as yet, and some areas are still being placed on lock-downs.
Right now we are attempting to get their livestock and animals fed, as well with hay and dog/cat food. If anyone has any of these items they would like to donate as well, please call the center and we can connect you with someone closer to the reservation.
On our last Resource Drive with all the help from each and everyone, we were able to send down approximately $15,000 in donations of surplus hygiene kits, hay and a water truck! (thank you, Ryan Anderson), medicine, masks, and children’s items.
The outpouring of care was overwhelming. There were Moab and Castle Valley and even out-of-the-area donations.
If you would like to donate, please call 435-259-1658.
