• We live in a very generous community and state, and that generosity is very apparent every single day.
We would like to thank everyone at Petro Marine Services for selecting the Southeast Alaska Food Bank as the recipient for its recent donation of $3,066.96. This money was raised as part of a promotion where five cents from every gallon of heating fuel purchased by their customers is donated to a local food bank.
In addition, we’d like to thank the Lindsey family, owners of Petro Marine, for making personal donations to us in conjunction with their company’s donation. Kurt, Diana and Carol Lindsey, through the Lindsey special account, each donated $1,533.48, bringing the total donation to $6,133.92.
On behalf of the Southeast Alaska Food Bank board of directors and our volunteers, we would like to thank everyone at Petro Marine Services for your generosity and for your continued support of the Southeast Alaska Food Bank and the work that we do. Your timely donation will allow us to continue our work of providing help to those families and individuals who otherwise might not be able to access much-needed food.
Last year, the Southeast Alaska Food Bank provided over 400,000 pounds of food to local food pantries, nonprofit organizations and members of the community. With the recent expansion of our facility we are now able to maintain much larger inventory of food, and we are better positioned to serve our community.
The goal of the Southeast Alaska Food Bank is to continue to make a difference in the quality of life for those who need help in providing food their families in times of need. The very generous donation from Petro Marine Services and the Lindsey family will help us continue to provide healthy and nutritious food for those in our community who need our assistance and is greatly appreciated.

• From the beginning, Mudrooms has generously donated 100 percent of profits to a nonprofit organization that benefits the community. NAMI Juneau is grateful to the Mudrooms Storyboard for selecting our organization during their eighth season.
We also want to thank the Juneau community for coming out to February’s storytelling event which raised over $1,500 to support NAMI Juneau’s programs which aim to educate, support and empower individuals affected by mental illness.
Mudrooms event proceeds will continue to benefit NAMI Juneau during the March, April and May storytelling events. Visit mudrooms.org for upcoming themes and dates.
