CoeurAlaska Kensington Mine raises $40K for United Way of Southeast Alaska

United Way announced the donation.

Coeur Alaska Kensington Mine raised $40,000 for United Way of Southeast Alaska, United Way announced in a news release.

The 2020 campaign gift includes $14,399.87 in employee payroll deduction contributions, $16,175 from an internal employee fundraiser, and a $9,425.13 donation from Coeur Alaska, according to United Way of Southeast Alaska.

“Coeur Alaska is a long-standing and much-appreciated supporter of the United Way of Southeast Alaska,” said Wayne Stevens, UWSEAK’s president and CEO in a news release. “In 2020 they found new ways to help our community and make an impact.”

The COVID-19 pandemic inspired Coeur Alaska to find alternative ways to support the UWSEAK in 2020, according to UWSEAK, including hosting internal employee fundraisers and increasing its company fundraising match, since employees could not participate in their usual volunteer work in the community.

“At Coeur Alaska, we work as a team to make a positive difference both at work and in the communities in which we live and operate,” said Coeur Alaska General Manager Mark Kiessling in the release. “Our long-standing partnership with United Way of Southeast Alaska exemplifies that value. In a year when communities need more support than ever, our employees worked together to support Southeast Alaska with the help from our friends at United Way.”

Steve Ball, Coeur Alaska’s Technical Services Manager, added in the release, “Coeur Alaska has been contributing to and strengthening the community for over 30 years and our Kensington employees care deeply for our community. We are grateful to be able to support our neighbors during a challenging year.”
