FARMINGTON N.M.—The need for essential supplies is even greater for people on the Navajo Nation. In grocery stores, essential household products are in short supply, and that shortage has not gone unnoticed on the Navajo Nation.

“There is a need right now on the Navajo nation for household cleaning supplies. Some of our families out there, obviously in very rural areas, they have limited access to getting those supplies, so we're trying to gather things up here locally and get it out," said Farmington Mayor Nate Duckett.


Mayor Duckett posted a video to social media on Tuesday asking the community to donate cleaning supplies. Local churches came together to hold a cleaning supply drive in their congregations. 

“And so why not help. It's something we can do and so we've done it” sayid Pastor Dan with Grace Baptist Church.

Some church leaders reached out to the community through social media to get this message across. Though it was short notice, people responded to this call for help.

The items will be delivered to Shiprock on Thursday morning. To make a donation to the Navajo Nation COVID-19 fund, click here.
