Chugach Electric Association is continuing its tradition of bringing holiday cheer to Anchorage families by donating 450 turkeys to 10 local non-profits. The holiday turkey delivery will occur the week of December 9 as part of an annual tradition.
This is the 18th year Chugach has donated turkeys to local non-profits to help fill the need for holiday meals and food baskets throughout the local area. The turkeys are purchased from Carrs/Safeway and distributed to the charities.
“Concern for community is one of the principles of a member-owned cooperative,” said Chugach CEO Lee Thibert. “We are happy to be able to continue this tradition of giving back and helping others over the holidays.”
The organizations receiving the turkeys include:
- Anchorage Rescue Mission
- Bean’s Café
- Boys & Girls Club
- Brother Francis Shelter
- Covenant House
- Food Bank of Alaska
- Lutheran Social Services
- St. Francis House
- Salvation Army/McKinnell House
