Event Workers:  Randy & Pam Williams (Operation 29:11), Jim Yost (Wings of Faith), Gasteiger Family (Jeff, Debby, Matthew, Michael) (Wings of Faith), Eric Luhmann (Wings of Faith / Operation 29:11), Kristy Scott (Native American Emergency Relief), Mona Reibold (Native American Emergency Relief)

Event:

The collaboration group had 2 semi loads delivered on 5/15 and 5/16 in preparation for event along with Operation 29:11 bring a 14 foot trailer full of items. 

27 Organizations were scheduled to come to the Wings of Faith Hanger/Warehouse at the Holbrook AZ Airport on Thursday 5/18 and Friday 5/19 and pick up items. The organizations provide assistance to the Navajo Reservation, Hopi Reservation, Fort Apache Reservation and San Carlos Reservation.  The area covered by these groups goes from Tonalea, AZ (North) to San Carlos, AZ (South) and from Cameron, AZ (West) to Laguna, NM (East). See map picture with pinpoints for each of the organizations on the Operation 29:11 Gallery.

We were able to distribute 740 items which represent items packed in cases to individual items.  The total amount of people served by these 27 organizations is 7,378!  This is our largest distribution to date. One of our concerns was we wouldn't have enough items for everyone especially those driving a long distance. God is so good and we had plenty!

Along with the distribution of items, Randy was conducting discussions with various groups on the garden project Operation 29:11 has been involved with at Sherman Indian High School in Riverside California. He was seeking feedback on changes needed to be done due to the different climate in Arizona and New Mexico. He has some great discussions and will be moving forward with setting up a project to implement on the reservation(s).

On Thursday 5/18 Toni from The Tribune Newspaper came out and interviewed the workers on what was going on.  She was very excited about the garden discussion that was happening and the Newborn Outreach boxes that she will do additional stories over the summer.

During a lull in groups coming in on Thursday afternoon, the team sorted tomatoes and eggplants pulling out the bad ones. Matthew and Michael Gasteiger made a Tomato Family out of some of the bad ones. The items being discarded were not tossed in the trash but local farmer came and picked up to feed his livestock.

We had 54 Newborn Outreach boxes for this distribution which brings us to 654 completed and delivered.  We continue to get requests for more boxes.
