The Mendenhall Flying Lions would like to thank Safeway in the Mendenhall Valley for allowing us to hold our Southeast Alaska Food Bank food donation drive on Saturday where we collected more than 1,000 pounds of food plus cash donations.
People of Juneau are always so giving and aware of the hardships others in our community may be facing, due to circumstances beyond their control. Juneauites are always so willing to help. Sometimes without even asking, adults and kids alike, came up to us with bags full of items to donate.
I don't know who enjoyed giving more - the adults or the kids! We all know there is always a good cause and there are always organizations asking for donations of food, clothes and money. However, organizations such as ours, would not be able to hold events like this if it were not for the businesses around town expressing their generosity and willingness to help. Again, thank you very much and we look forward to doing this again!
