MILLCREEK, Utah – The Navajo Nation in the four corners area has been one of the hardest-hit communities by the COVID-19 pandemic and people along the Wasatch Front have jumped in to help.

Collyn Mosquito, who is part Navajo, is collecting supplies with Millcreek City and the Utah Tribal COVID-19 Relief Fund to send to the Navajo Nation.

“I just want to do what I can to help my people,” Mosquito said.

Their goal is to fill a semi-truck of donated toiletries, diapers, cleaning supplies and non-perishables to send next week.

Organizers said the community has really stepped up so far.

“It has been more than I ever imagined,” Mosquito said. “It’s amazing how many people have responded, even outside of Millcreek.”
