United Natives has teamed up with a charter school in Flagstaff, Arizona called BASIS. In taking action to support our Native neighbors who lack adequate heating through firewood collection and distribution. Our volunteers work diligently to distribute firewood and other critical supplies to elders on both the Navajo and Hopi reservations. The project grew out of efforts that started early in the pandemic.Our efforts have attracted a great deal of attention in our community. Several local loggers, excavators, and home builders drop firewood at a rented lot. This enables us to have a supply of firewood for our partners on the Navajo and Hopi Nations to pick up and then distribute to their communities. So, BASIS Flagstaff NHS is playing a critical role in empowering the local community.
