Thank you letters for Oct. 28, 2018

• The Southeast Alaska Food Bank would like to thank the employees of the USDA Forest Service Juneau for donating 315 pounds of food to us on Oct. 24 as part of the annual Feds Feed Families campaign.

We live in a very selfless and generous community, and this is very apparent every time a group like this chooses to collect food to help our cause.

It’s only because of efforts like this, and the generosity of the people of Juneau, that we can continue to work towards our goal of providing healthy and nutritious food to those members of our community who may need help providing food for themselves and their families.

Thank you again, USDA Forest Service Juneau. Together, we can end hunger.

Darren Adams,

Juneau

The Alaska Native Sisterhood and Brotherhood Camp 70 Glacier Valley raised over $14,500 for the Northern Light United Church (NLUC) elevator replacement project by hosting a delicious dinner and auction on Sept. 7. Thank you to all who supported the efforts of the brothers and sisters! We especially want to thank Tlingit and Haida Central Council who donated the use of the beautiful Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall, and the Lions Club, Goldbelt Incorporated, Sealaska Corporation and the Juneau Tlingit and Haida Community Council for their generous monetary support. Three artists from the Lemon Creek Correctional Center donated a hand-carved staff, mask and paddle. We also appreciate all the community members, brothers and sisters, and NLUC church members who donated items, bought tickets, worked in the kitchen, and attended and bid on the auction items and made this a fun family event!

A big thank you to the many local businesses who donated items for the auction: Alaskan Fudge Co., Annie Kaill’s, Artist Coop: Merrily Davis and Thyes Shaub, Bear’s Lair, Bill Spear, Changing Tides Giftshop, Costco, Curves, Don Abel’s, Fred Meyer, Goldtown Nickelodeon Theater, Harbor Tea & Spice, IGA, Jerry’s Meats, Juneau Racquet Club, La Boheme, Office Max, Valley Lumber, Traveler’s Eye Gift Shop, and Trickster’s. Every item sold!

In recognition of Pastor Phil Campbell and his wife Teresa Campbell’s upcoming retirement, ANB and ANS Camp 70 recognized them with hand carved silver bracelets by artist Donald Gregory featuring the organizations logos. During their eight years in Juneau, Phil and Teresa provided 10 years of wonderful service to not only NLUC, but also to ANB and ANS, to Juneau, and to Southeastern communities. Gunalchéesh, Phil and Teresa!

With deep appreciation to all the volunteers, contributors and attendees!

Lillian Petershoare,

Outgoing 2nd Vice President
