Donate Face Masks To The Navajo Nation

Donate Face Masks To The Navajo Nation

If you have fabric face masks looking for a home, please donate some of them to The Navajo Nation.

Like so many other communities, The Navajo Nation has a lack of PPE and essential medical supplies necessary to serve their patients.

Here is some general background, from The Navajo Nation Government site:

“The Navajo Nation extends into the states of Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, covering over 27,000 square miles of unparalleled beauty. Diné Bikéyah, or Navajoland, is larger than 10 of the 50 states in America.”

The Navajo Nation therefore has a lot of ground to cover, literally, with the limited medical supplies they have.

Items To Donate To The Navajo Nation

Below is a list of their exact needs.

Donate to The Navajo Nation today.

In addition to physical donations, they are also looking for monetary donations.

Tomorrow I’m mailing you 50 fabric masks. I have been making these for our local community here in North Carolina, so I made some for you after hearing about your need through the Franklin Graham ministry. I will mail these priority mail. God bless your work

I have been making face masks to donate to your Nation and hope that they can help you. It's such a small effort but it's all I can do. I know the Federal Government will not send the help you need even in this pandemic emergency because they have failed you forever.
