Wow, what amazing Christmas season this has been! We've been so blessed! The first blessing happened over the weekend of December 13-14. A lovely group of people held a food drive in South Anchorage and brought in a ton of donations. Once the drive was ended, we had to figure out how to get all of the donations back to our office. One person suggested we call up the fire department and just in the nick of time we had 20+ firefighters show up to help us get all of the donations off the truck and into our office.
Thank you to the following groups for helping make this weekend not only possible but a HUGE success!
- KBEAR 104.1
- Fleenor Paper
- Denali Group
- Midnight Sun Brewery
- Sam's Club
- Anchorage Fire Station 1
Our second blessing happened on December 19th. It was our 18th annual Christmas party. With the help of numerous volunteers and organizations like Gap and Petco (both of which organized and collected teddy bears for the kids), we couldn't have had one of our most successful Children's Christmas parties ever.
Thank you to everyone who was involved (named and unnamed). You ALL made the difference for hungry children right here in Anchorage, Alaska.
