Good News for Friends of Navajo House of Fellowship,
Nihitaa' Binaanish, Our Father's Business has decided to take up Shamrock Food's offer of bi-weekly dairy and protein distributions for the fall months. These food boxes have been popular and we hope receiving these grocery items help keep folks at home. The Navajo Nation is reinstating weekend lockdowns for the fall and we hope sharing healthy food in a safe, drive-by manner will align with other healthy practices in Diné Bikeyah. In addition, we know that the groceries reach some of our neighbors who do not have access to fresh food or transportation.
Since the NB leadership will be back at work full time, we hope to have people join the local volunteers at the House of Fellowship with set up, unloading, passing out boxes of food to vehicles, filling hand sanitizer bottles, making individual hygiene bags with sanitizer and masks, and clean up. NB may need help with food delivery to shut-ins and those who have no transportation. In addition to our local community, NB has been blessed with so much support from arounfd the country, especially Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Los Alamos.
NB has to go by the distributor, Shamrock's schedule, and they cannot always tell us specific dates and times ahead of time. We are planning for the next dairy box distribution at House of Fellowship at Bread Springs, NM to be in the early weeks of October, and continue through November The trucks generally arrive between 10 a.m. and 2 pm.
We will let you know as soon as we get dates and tentative times via our Facebook page. Many have told us they would like to try to help out with at least one more distribution. This is a much needed task and though it will take a day of your time, it will be worth it in the love of Christ that you share and the friends you make and revisit.

Please keep this project in your prayers. We appreciate all your prayer and support.
