Thank you to all those who gave so generously to have your gifts wrapped at this year's Holiday Gift Wrap fundraiser at the Nugget Mall and to those who made additional donations. Proceeds will go to a very good cause - our senior nutrition programs, including Meals on Wheels. This fundraiser helped us a great deal toward our $20,000 fundraising goal for the year.
A special thank you to the more than 100 volunteers who helped staff the event, including members of the Juneau Retired Teachers Association, National Active and Retired Federal Employees, Pioneers of Alaska, Women of the Moose, Eastern Star, and Wells Fargo -- all of which staffed the fund raiser for one or two days each.
Finally, thank you to Reliable Transfer, who loaned tables; the Nugget Mall, for supplying the space; and Melissa Goese-Goble, for the beautiful promotional posters.
Because of all of you, the fundraiser was a wonderful success. We so much appreciated your efforts.
President, Gastineau Channel Senior Centers' Advisory Council
