"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."
