GREATER YAVAPAI COUNTY COALITION
COVID SUPPORT BOX PROGRAM
GYCC launched the COVID Support Box Program in response to families testing positive for Covid.
GYCC provided over 175 COVID SUPPORT BOXES to Community Members, Agencies, Families and children. These boxes supported over 400 individuals! Most boxes go to entire families with children who have tested positive.

This was the case with Vonda’s Family.
Here’s her story!
Vonda: In our situation, we found ourselves with 11 people in our house due to my roommate getting temporary custody of 6 of her grandchildren overnight and the father flying in from Washington state.
Unfortunately, the youngest child brought COVID home and it spread throughout the house over a 4 week period.
As soon as GYCC members found out we had COVID, they delivered two boxes that contained all the medicine we needed for adults and children, snacks, Gatorade, thermometer, oximeter, gloves, sanitizer, masks, basically everything we needed and couldn’t go out and get for ourselves.
The relief that was provided in having these items delivered was immense and allowed us to focus on resting and not going out into the community and spreading COVID.
I brought a box to another person who had COVID and she said the same thing—she actually was taken to the hospital because her oxygen levels got too low and because of the oximeter in the box, she was able to monitor her 02 and get the help she needed before she got worse.
Thank you to all the people involved in getting these boxes out!
