Programs: Semi-Annual Food Runs: May and October we pack and deliver food boxes and fresh food to 500 Elders and their families. Along with food we provide simple medicines and appropriate clothing and working tools.

Rug Show and Sale: At the Elder's request we have provided a show and sale for their traditional weavings. Each November the three day event brings Weavers and their families to Park City. All proceeds go directly to the weaver. Grants and donations cover the expenses of the show.

Elder Adoption Program: In the Native tradition of adoption, we connect traditional Elders over 65 with individuals willing to adopt them. The obligation is providing food boxes twice a year and providing other needed items as the adopting individual can provide.

For the Children: During the semi-annual food runs we deliver children's boxes that contain school supplies and other needed items for young people living with the traditional Elders.

For the Forgotten: Many of our Elders are well over 90 years old and do not speak or read English. These forgotten Elders have special medical and health related needs we try to fill with donations and support of volunteers.

Mission:
ANE supports impoverished Navajo Elder weavers living in remote areas of UT and AZ reservations. We help them sell their rugs online and at rug shows, and provide humanitarian aid to Elders who are too disabled to support themselves.  Each Spring and Fall volunteers pack and deliver food and supplies to 11 areas of reservation in community gatherings called Food Runs.  For the annual November Deer Valley Rug Show ANE brings Elder weavers and their family to Park City, provides for their lodging and food, and all of the money from the sale of their rugs goes to the weavers.  Elders in the program are 75-108 years old, many do not speak English, many heat with wood and do not have running water in their homes.  ANE has received Charity Navigator''s 4-star top rating for fiscal responsibility three years in a row.

We've been long-time participants/donors in this program (approx. 15 years). For the first 5 years, we only donated items for auction to raise funds for the program. Finally, after yearly requests from Linda Myers, we went to the Rug Show to actually see what takes place and how our donations were... more »
