Warm Winter Gear Drive for the Native American Elders in the Navajo Nation
Native Americans have the highest rate of COVID-19 infection in the U.S. Already facing severe health disparities prior to the pandemic, the Coronavirus Crisis promises to widen the gap, especially elders. As infection rates rise and the temperature drops, elders are in need of warm winter material, particularly single-person blankets, gloves, scarves, and socks.
Please join us and the Afya Foundation in this warm winter gear drive collecting material for Navajo elders in Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico, in partnership with CORE Response.
