For health care workers and families battling coronavirus on the Navajo Nation, masks and gowns are essential but often in short supply. Environmental health researchers with the Southwest Research and Information Center in Albuquerque created the “Tribal Clinical Relief Support” GoFundMe account to collect money and supplies for Navajo hospitals and communities.
Molly Rennie, the director of outdoor education and an English teacher at Sandia Preparatory School in Albuquerque, organized a donation drive at the school to help the cause. The school sent an email to all past and present Sandia Prep students and teachers asking for money, diapers, homemade gowns and masks for the Navajo Nation.
