Hello, my name is Danielle Joe and I am Bitter Water clan born for Coyote Pass Clan. My maternal grandfather was Laguna Pueblo and my paternal grandfather was Deer Springs Clan.
I am one of ten grandchildren of Victoria and Bradley Blair. My grandmother is from Kayenta, AZ, daughter of late Navajo Code Talker King Paul Mike Sr. My grandfather is a Vietnam Veteran raised in Red Mesa, Arizona. They bought Totsoh Trading Post back in 1984, located in Lukachukai, AZ. Totsoh Trading Post is one of 13 grocery stores across the Navajo Nation (approximately the size of the state of West Virginia.) Totsoh Trading Post serves over 1,701 people in the area. Just like other small family owned businesses we have suffered from Covid-19 Pandemic. But we love our community and we keep on serving them as much as we could in these times. We are asking for your help to keep our community safe by purchasing a ….. machine, masks, gloves, hand washing stations, etc. to help keep our store safe for our community and our heroic employees who work hard during these times. We are very excited to announce our commitment with Meredith Mann and her company Magic Mann to help local businesses and individuals on the Navajo Nation.
Terrell Benally is located near the Montezuma Creek Valley in Utah, covering another region of the Navajo Nation from Danielle. He has been organizing many boxes and food drives to help his community. He has done many successful pet food drive ups which gave out free dog/cat food, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and cold drinks! He works on organizing the delivery of care packages to the elderly throughout the his area, on a weekly basis and then puts on weekly drive up giveaways to aid his community where it needs it.
Meredith Mann’s continuous work of donating supplies, money, and energy to make sure the native people have the proper amenities to get through today’s extremely cautious times with Covid-19 has been a small help in the side of this huge issue. We ask that you make any donation you can along with your order and this extra money will go directly to help the Navajo Nation, specifically we have been mailing to Kayenta in Arizona to supply the medical staff with the things they need. If you wish to donate something actually tangible and not money, any disinfectant products or PPE is desperately needed. You can collect up as many items as you want and then reach out through our contact form and we will arrange a pick up with you and then mail the items directly to the community members on the reservation.
