ANS receives donation from Northrim Bank

The Alaska Native Sisterhood Glacier Valley Camp 70 president Andrea Cesar received a $500 contribution for the Feed the Mind breakfast program from Cheryl Fellman, Northrim Bank’s vice president and southeast regional sales and service manager.

The Feed the Mind program provides financial assistance to help the volunteers at Glacier Valley, Riverbend, and Gastineau elementary schools with their free breakfast programs. More than 200 children start each school day with a healthy breakfast because of the program.

According to ANS, these students might otherwise go without, and the volunteer breakfast programs allows these students to concentrate on their studies instead of their empty stomachs.

Anyone interested in contributing to the program can email Andrea Cesar at
