Community Relations Events Team Creating “Staying Connected” Videos

Members of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community like to gather to celebrate holidays and events with friends and family, but preventing the spread of COVID-19 means making some changes. Unfortunately, these changes include canceling some popular annual events, such as the Fourth of July fireworks, in favor of new ways to celebrate that don’t require large gatherings.

Because of this, the SRPMIC Community Relations Office has decided to help with celebrations while at home. CRO Events is producing and releasing a series of “Staying Connected” videos that demonstrate, for example, how to decorate your car or how to make grilling easy. While these videos are simple, their main purpose is to help families and friends celebrate special times without the need to have a large gathering, and to make people feel connected to one another.

All SRPMIC departments are doing their absolute best to find ways to deliver their services through virtual means. Creating new projects and environments around the COVID-19 virus is a unique way to have Community members interact with each other.
