In mid-may, we were approached by the Real Salt Lake Foundation and their national partners, Heart of America and Swinerton Renewable Energy, with an opportunity to continue work getting distance learning kits and PPE to the Navajo Nation. We were honored to participate in the effort to reach more students in the Navajo Nation within New Mexico.
With the help of our staff, volunteers, players and local partners - Electric Playhouse, providing the space and more volunteers, and Safer New Mexico Now providing hand sanitizer - 1,200 students received PPE, supplies, books and STEM activity kits to keep them engaged academically and creatively over the summer. We know that with COVID-19 and its dramatic spread on the Reservation, many students are home facing an uncertain return to their classrooms.
We are proud to support these efforts, which are continuing to support more students across the Native community in New Mexico. If you would like to get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
