Outreach Utility Assistance
Did you know?
- Many Navajo families still live in traditional wooden hogans with dirt floors and holes in the windows and walls.
- Nearly one-third of Navajo homes still have no electricity.
- Of the households who do have electricity, only about a quarter use it to heat their homes.
Winters on the Eastern Navajo Reservation can be bitterly cold and windy, especially at night. Thousands of Navajo families living in substandard housing and without electricity are at risk of exposure to freezing temperatures, hypothermia, or worse.
Please help St. Bonaventure Indian Mission provide urgent heating assistance to Navajo families in need.
Your generosity helps supply needy families with warm clothes, blankets, firewood, propane, wood-burning stoves, and offer financial assistance with past-due electrical bills. The Mission’s Outreach team is also hard at work repairing walls, roofs, doors, and windows to better protect families from the bitter cold.
Thank you in advance for offering your online support of St. Bonaventure Indian Mission and School. Your generous financial support is a lifeline for all those on the Eastern Navajo Reservation struggling to stay warm during these frigid winter months.
