Cody Koebnick, a Community Volunteer Specialist for SAGA, stacks food at the Southeast Alaska Food Bank Monday evening after SAGA members collected 960 pounds of food during a drive to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

SAGA volunteers and Juneau residents participated in a national day of caring on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, collecting 960 lbs. of food for the Southeast Alaska Foodbank.

SAGA is a non-profit organization with a mission of improving lives, lands, and communities in Alaska through Service Learning.

SAGA was founded in 1985 to fill the void left when federal funding ended for the Youth and Young Adult Conservation Corps programs in the early 1980s. The focus of providing job training, experiential education, and leadership opportunities to young people has grown over the years into five SAGA programs: The Serve Alaska Youth Corps; the Alaska Service Corps; Young Alaskans Building Affordable Housing (YABAH); the Connections Individual Placement Program; and the Eagle Valley Center. These programs all represent SAGA’s continuing dedication to helping young people make the connection between what they learn and how they live.
