Anchorage Builders Share the Holidays With Needy Children
In their annual holiday drive, the members of the Anchorage Home Builders Association are working to touch the lives of Alaskan children who are homeless, living in shelters and financially destitute.
This year’s goal of the association is to provide 300 children with a Christmas shoebox – backpacks that contain a warm hat, a pair of gloves and some basic personal hygiene items.
The children have been identified as “in need” by the Anchorage School District.
The association is seeking donations of $50, which is the cost of purchasing and assembling a backpack for a sponsored child, and its members will be working to decorate and fill the gifts.
The deadline for contributions is Dec. 7 and additional information is available by e-mailing Paul Rieland, or call him at 907-522-3605
