NavajoStrong was created to empower and aid the Navajo Community during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. Our goal is to empower the Diné people against disease, poverty, and other health disparities.
In April of 2020, I was closely following the COVID-19 pandemic as it devastated and shut down country after country. As a healthcare worker, a former ICU nurse, I began to worry about our healthcare system being overrun by this disease. The stories of running out of ventilators, staff falling ill, and the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 devastated me.
Then I found out I had lost family members to the disease on the Navajo reservation. I made the decision in my mind to help my family members as much as I could. The plan was to collect and purchase supplies then take the supplies to families in the Navajo Community.
Before I made my first trip, I was featured on the news. The response from that story brought in more volunteers, supplies, and monetary donations from all over the United States.
We collected and delivered critical supplies: firewood, food, water, cleaning supplies, toiletries, paper towels, masks, dog food, baby wipes, diapers, shovels, brooms, axes, and more.
The best part? The donations and supplies go straight to the family in need.
Contact me if you'd like to donate supplies and can drop them off in the Lehi area. Or if you'd like to volunteer a weekend, a truck, a trailer, or your time! Text or call 385-429-0911.
