Ojo Encino Chapter in Navajo Nation. If you have never been there it is hard to imagine that there is no enterprise. It is now cold an average of 35 degrees. When I original talked to our coordinating partner in the village I asked her what they need she said, "Right now I'm trying to get people wood and blankets for the winter. Winter clothing like jackets and warm shoes, hats and gloves." All they want is to be warm, they are not concerned about Thanksgiving or Christmas. We plan to make a difference this year.
They have narrowed the need down to 40 children to receive Christmas gifts out of a community that has 309 that are less than 18 years of age based on census numbers. There are no jobs and many in this community live without electric and running water. We need your assistance to outreach to this rural area.
We are making progress on this project. We still have around 20 children or teens to be adopted for Christmas. Ojo Encino Chapter is 500 miles from our base location. We want to take a few people with us to deliver the gifts when we go. We need your assistance to raise the money for gas and hotels as well as more people to become Saint Nicks to provide gifts to the children that have yet to be adopted. It is the season for giving. Let's make someone that does not expect anything to have a great Christmas this year.
We are doing a clothing drive to raise money to make the trip to deliver the donation the weekend of December 15, 2012.
December 8, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. we will be at the AutoZone collecting clothing with the Clothing Cycle. http://www.clothingcycle.com, https://www.facebook.com/ClothingCycle
We need pounds and pounds of clothing. Our goal is a minimum of 4000 pounds. We receive $0.15 per pound. Make an Investment in Love and Kindness and bring your clothes to AutoZone 2129 W Guadalupe
Mesa AZ 85202 in order to make a difference in people's lives.
