Summer Emergency Boxes

Summer Emergency Boxes

  • Description – During the hot summer months when the heat can threaten Native Elders, the Summer Emergency Box service ensures that food and other critical supplies are readily available. Working with Elderly Nutrition Centers, we provide emergency supplies that our Program Partners deliver to Elders in their community. Essentials may include items such as cooling blankets, flashlights, batteries, non-perishable food, and water. 
  • DBA/Region – Sioux Nation Relief Fund (SNRF) (Northern Plains), Navajo Relief Fund (NRF) (Southwest) 
  • Service Type – Immediate Relief, Donor funded 

[The supplies] really came in handy, and I think we saved a lot of money. I don’t know what we would have done without them – everything we use was there.

[$1,000 a month], it’s not a whole lot, especially when you have bills… Electricity, propane, groceries, and gas are so expensive – even a two-piece pork chop is $9.00. . . Some of us can’t afford to go to the store, and sometimes we don’t have money.
