The Hopi Nation in Northeastern Arizona has been devastated by COVID-19. Water was desperately needed as many of their wells have dried up and some of their water supply contains arsenic. This means basic tasks like being able to wash their hands and get a clean drink of water become nearly impossible.

Albertsons and Safeway in Arizona partnered with St. Vincent DePaul Society, Real Hope, and parishioners from St. Patrick’s church to provide a fresh supply of water and $25,000 donation to the Hopi Nation. The donations were crucial and our team is grateful to have the ability to provide support to the wonderful Hopi people, who live by an ethic of peace and goodwill.
