STOP and buy food - DROP off food - GOAL fill the Shelves
September 15 - October 15
Mayor Ken Koelsch invites you to a one-time community wide endeavor to fill the shelves of the Southeast Alaska Food Bank new addition.
September 15 - October 15 there will be a friendly competition to collect food. Different groups in our community will be accepting donations during assigned weeks throughout the month.
The schedule is as follows:
September 15 - 21: Education, K-12 schools and UAS
September 22 - 28: Service Clubs
September 29 - October 5: Faith Based Groups
October 6 - 15: Feds VS State VS Local
IF YOU CAN DONATE NON-PERISHABLE FOOD, PLEASE DROP IT OFF AT OUR SCHOOL COLLECTION POINT IN THE COMMONS.
Acceptable foods are: canned chili, soup, meats, fruit, vegetables, pasta and rice, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti sauce and peanut butter.
Monetary donations are also accepted and credited a pound per $1 in the competition.
Thank you for helping to extinguish hunger!!
