Hats, scarfs, gloves, blankets, etc for traditional Navajo Elders

Adopt-A-Native Elder assists over 500 traditional Navajo Elders ages 70-105 maintain their traditional ways of life and pass their knowledge to younger generations. These Elders live in extremely spartan conditions on the Navajo Reservation, often with no electricity or locally available water. The organization assists the Elders market their rugs, jewelry and other crafts to earn money to live. It also assists with raw materials, clothing, food, firewood, and medical needs, as many Elders are unable to earn enough for all their needs. All donations of handmade items are greatly appreciated.
Although this is not explicit on the website, contact the office via or call call 801-474-0535 to submit donations.
