This contactless distribution event is part of the NB3 Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund initiative designed to deliver critical resources to Native youth, elders and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers said in a news release.
There are no financial eligibility requirements for Native families, and free distribution will be on a first-come, first-served basis in the north parking lot of the Cultural Center, according to the release. The event will end when supplies run out.
