Letter to the editor: Ben family appreciates Grand Canyon community's assistance and generosity

To the editor:

On behalf of the Ben family, we would like to thank the entire community of Grand Canyon. We express our heartfelt "thank you" to each and every one for your outpouring support in our time of need. The Navajo Taco Sale fundraiser event held on Jan. 25 in Grand Canyon was a huge success. We appreciate everyone who brought food, clothing, furniture and all monetary contributions. You have touched our hearts with your kindness, love, generosity and prayers.

Special thanks to Brian and Verna (We Cook Pizza), Xanterra (El Tovar) and Grand Canyon Recreation Center, The Grand Hotel, Village Delaware North Park Service, Tom and Mryna and family, Arlene Keebahe and family, Joanne Peshtony and family, Marie and Benson Henry, Selena Ben and family, Tina Yazzie, Starr Brower, Clara Toledo, and others who donated food items for the taco sale.

There will be an additional Navajo Taco Sale in the near future.


Phillip and Martha Ben

and family
