I love getting phone calls from folks who see fliers about events I help organize. Today I received a call from a man who saw our flier for the David Rovics House Party who wanted to rsvp. The conversation rolled into who he works for: Adopt a Native Elder. As a result of his call, I have been able to outreach to all sorts of other people about the Food Run program, for which volunteer drivers will be needed in May to take food to Big Mountain.
Each May and October the Program delivers boxes of food, clothing and simple medicines to different areas of the reservation.
The first part of the Food Run delivers items to areas in the Northeast section of Arizona close to Chinle, Many Farms, and Tsaile.
The second part of the Food Run delivers items to areas in the Northwest section of Arizona close to Kykutsmovi, Teesto, Bird Springs, Pinion, and Big Mountain.
