$10,000 was donated to Kids Kupboard, whose mission is to end child hunger with sustainable, grassroots child-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption throughout Mat-Su Valley.
$10,000 was donated to the Children’s Hospital at Providence, which provides state-of-the-art medical treatment for Alaska's newborns, children and their families.
$3,500 was donated to Kids’ Corps, Inc., in support of their programs which include Head Start, Early Head Start, Anchorage School District Collaborative and Parents as Teachers. Kids’ Corps, Inc., has a mission to provide a high quality, comprehensive program to children and families which promotes sound intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth.
