Thank you, Sealaska

Thank you, Sealaska

Thank you, Gunalcheesh, Haw’aa, Ndoyk’shun.

On March 1, Healing Hand Foundation Board held a celebratory luncheon to thank Sealaska for completing two $500,000 grants, totaling $1 million. The two grants established Healing Hand Foundation’s endowment.

The gathering honored Sealaska’s longstanding commitment to supporting our mission, providing assistance to help meet some of the unfunded medical and health care related needs of SEARHC beneficiaries and veterans. Sealaska board member emeritus, Albert Kookesh, received the gift, a bead button blanket sewn by Alberta J. Aspen.
