Update:
Due to the overwhelming amount of supplies donated by generous Alaskans, it seems most needs are met right now. We took our last load of supplies to the fire victims on Friday, June 26. We would like to thank the following people and organizations for your donations to the various fire victims: Amanda Wright with Frontier Home Health and Hospice: Anchorage; Pat Abney; Barb Sell; Lindsey Vaughan; Jeannie Thompson; Rev Sara Brown-St Mark Lutheran Church; Bill Thompson; Thomas Hamilton and Donna Lindttees; Joan Adamy; Yvonne Tansill; Carol Does; Karen Dale; JBER Families; Ted Jacobson with EPA Anchorage; ChangePoint Young Adults Group; McDonald’s, Mike Davidson organization; McCullaugh Family; St Mark Lutheran Church; S.T.A.R. (Standing Together Against Rape); Smith, Hall & Derks; Dorthy and Tamiko Matsui; Dixie Hudish; Bob and Betty Lutye; Barbara Cher; Health and Wellness Department of Anchorage Senior Activity Center; Betty Burke; Helga Watterson; Jeremiah and Frances Greene; Fred and Beryl Kring; Darrell Swanson-St Marks’ Lutheran Church; Bernadette DeSantes; Megan Thomas-Providence; Chugiak Senior Center; Anchorage & Valley Radiation Therapy Centers; Life Alaska Donor Services, and the numerous Alaskans who gave generously but didn’t give us their names. During the two weeks of the project, we collected several tons of water, food, clothing and other household items. With online donations, we purchased additional food items, rented a box van, and paid for gas. We would like to thank Midnight Sun Car Rental and U-haul for giving us amazing discounts. We also would like to thank Life-Alaska for their help with deliveries. AHF made a total of 7 trips to deliver the supplies to the fire victims. We thank everyone for their donations and help. It was a beautiful thing to see our community come together like this, to help those in need. Thank you!
