Thank you to all who donated to the Project Christmas fund by putting your change in the donation cans at the IGA Food Cache and the Alaska Farmers Co-op and by depositing directly to the Project Christmas fund at the Mt. McKinley Bank. Thanks also to Realtor Lana Kulikovskiy and to Northern Star Resources Limited (Pogo Mine) for their donations.
It is never too late (or too early) to donate to Project Christmas. The helpful folks at Mt. McKinley Bank can get your donation into the Project Christmas account any time of the year.
Thank you to all the volunteers who picked up the food and boxed it, helped load it into vehicles, and delivered it. Warm thanks to the Seventh Day Adventist crew for obtaining the gifts and wrapping them up for the recipients.
An exuberant thanks this year to Laura White of Granite View Sports and Gifts for the mittens, gloves, hats and scarfs from the “mitten trees” she and her crew organized around town.
To all of the people who received boxes of food and gifts and did not get their additional food items (about 15 people), please call Ann Geise at 907-803-3449 to arrange pickup of the items that were not included in the original box of food. We wish you a peaceful and happy new year.
