Alaska USA Foundation Donates to Local Nonprofits

Alaska USA Foundation donates $25,000 to local nonprofits in Alaska and Arizona.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska— The Alaska USA Foundation donated a total of $25,000 to local nonprofit organizations in Alaska and Arizona, working hard to provide services to the armed forces and programs to support children.

$10,000 was donated to the American Red Cross of Alaska to support the Armed Forces program that provide services to service men and women, veterans, and their families by providing emergency services, supporting family resiliency, and providing care and comfort in military and veterans medical healthcare facilities. $5,000 was donated to Educare Arizona to assist with providing early childhood learning, family support, and health care. Their goal is to close the achievement gap for high-risk, low-income children. $5,000 was donated to Kid in the Corner in support of their Penny Pledge youth suicide prevention program. The program provides youth with education and concrete steps they can take to prevent youth suicide and take care of their own mental health. $5,000 was donated to Southwest Human Development to help fund the Reach Out and Read program on Luke Air Force Base. This program focuses on early literacy work with active-duty military families with young children. “We are pleased to have an opportunity to provide support to local nonprofits in Alaska and Arizona,” said Dan McCue, Executive Director, Alaska USA Foundation. “They fill the needs in our communities that would otherwise go unmet. The Alaska USA Foundation is honored to provide financial support for them to fulfill their worthy missions.”
