SECON supports youth fund

SECON Southeast Alaska recently made a generous donation of $10,000 to the Juneau Community Foundation’s newly established Youth Fund. The Youth Fund seeks to provide school kids with the opportunity to participate in cultural, artistic, athletic or academic activities regardless of economic status.

“We are very pleased to be able to donate to the Juneau Community Foundation and its newly established youth fund,” said SECON General Manager Tim Dudley. “We share in the belief that involving our younger generation in worthwhile activities is vital to our community and its future. SECON is committed to Juneau and this is our way of contributing to the community we live, work and play in.”

SECON’s leadership gift to the Youth Fund, combined with other lead gifts from local individuals and businesses, will ensure that good work is done in support of youth activities in our hometown. The Foundation appreciates SECON’s commitment to Juneau’s future and their confidence in the Foundation’s role in the community.
