The 2009 Fairbanks Heart Walk was a success, raising a total of $239,245 for the American Heart Association, exceeding the goal of $215,000. The UAF and Statewide Company also exceeded its goal by raising $39,933.81. Thank you to everyone who joined and supported the SW Heart Walk team. We recruited eight teammates and raised $1,090 for the American Heart Association. Special thanks to Kim Eames and Bess Rounds who helped Paloma Harbour to sell all of the raffle tickets we had available. Here's hoping a Statewide employee was the lucky winner.
Eagle Food and Supply Drive
Once again Statewide staff showed their generosity and compassion, by giving significantly to those in need. The Eagle Food and Supply drive was a very quick impromptu action in response to the flooding that has wreaked havoc in Eagle and other communities along the Yukon River. Thanks to your generous donations, we collected a significant amount of clothing, food and water, and toiletry items that will aid these communities as they try to rebuild. The work is merely beginning for those communities and there are other communities along still facing the possibility of flooding.
