Navajo-Hopi Observer

ST. MICHAELS, Ariz.-This holiday season help the Grants Community Outreach Center stock their pantry. Join the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission in participating in the Commission's first time ever food drive starting Nov. 14 and ending on Nov. 30.

The Navajo Technical College and the Navajo United Way proudly join the Commission to support the food drive designed to help those in need and who frequently utilize the Community Outreach Center in Grants, New Mexico.

Donate non-perishable food fit for a holiday feast and for the winter season. Simply take your donations to the following locations:

• The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission office, which is located near Hogan Hozhoni in the Apache county subdivision, at 29 Crest Rd. in St. Michaels, Navajo Nation (AZ); call (928) 871-7436.

• Navajo United Way office, which is located on the east side of the U.S. Post Office in Window Rock, Ariz.; call (928) 206-6318.

• And, contact Clyde Henderson for drop off locations at Navajo Technical College in Crownpoint, N.M. at (505) 786-4300/4301.

"If you're going to give, give with your heart," said Vanessa Thompson, the executive director of Navajo United Way. "It does make an impact on somebody's life."

"Unfortunately the reality of difficult hard economic times falls heavy on our needy Navajo families especially during the holiday season," said Duane H. Yazzie for the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission. "Those of us who anticipate a bountiful holiday dinner table must consider and decide to share even a little, as every small donation adds up and means a tremendous blessing of sharing for our families in need."

For more information, call the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission at (928) 871-7436.
