Chugach donates 425 turkeys to charity

Chugach Electric Association is donating nearly 6,000 pounds of turkey to 15 different local charitable organizations, including Bean's Café, the Food Bank of Alaska, Covenant House, Mother Lawrence foundation and Hope Community Resources. This is the fifth year in a row Chugach has donated turkeys to local charitable organizations.

Chugach will deliver the 425 turkeys to local charities Dec. 14 and 15.

The donation helps fill a need in the community for turkeys for holiday meals and gift baskets that will be distributed throughout the local area. Chugach purchased the turkeys from Carrs/Safeway.

Chugach is the largest electric utility in Alaska, providing power for Alaskans throughout the Railbelt through retail, wholesale and economy energy sales.
