... for the support.
The local unit of the American Cancer Society would like to thank the people of Juneau, Skagway, Angoon, Gustavus, Hoonah and Tenakee for their support of the Society's Daffodil Days fund-raiser. Your generous purchases of the daffodils make possible the programs (local and national) and American Cancer Society research, as $4 of every $6 goes into these programs.
This project is our major fundraiser which takes a coordinated effort on the part of many people - those who do the presales, the persons in the offices that collect orders, those who sort; Ricker and Assoc. who arrange the use of the Goldbelt lobby; the deliverers; the restaurants and other businesses who participate; the team of legislative wives who sell at the Capitol; Wings of Alaska and Skagway Air, who transport to the villages; Susan's Hallmark; the media that gives us "PR"; and especially, to Alaska Marine Lines for shipping the daffodils to Juneau free of charge.
You did it again! With this great widespread community effort, we raised more than $25,000 here in Southeast Alaska for the ongoing fight against cancer. Congratulations and a big thank you!
If at anytime you or someone you know needs assistance, we encourage you to contact the local unit of the Cancer Society at P.O. Box 21836, Juneau, AK 99802, or by phone at 790-3555.

AWARE would like to thank the 4-H, Alaska Cooperative Extension, for their generous donation of the proceeds from their recent bake sale. AWARE is honored to be chosen as the recipient of all the hard work and time that went in to making the bake sale possible. AWARE is also proud that so many fine young people know the importance of AWARE's mission in keeping our community a safer place and are willing to volunteer their time and energy to help make that happen.
Many, many heartfelt thanks to all 4-H participants and their families.

The guests and staff of the Glory Hole would like to thank the Boy Scouts of Juneau for their generous donation of 500 pounds of nonperishable food. We applaud their compassion and thoughtfulness for thinking of the less fortunate. When we all come from the heart, the world will change.
We would also like to thank the U.S. Forest Service for their successful food drive. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules and lives to help those in need. You are a perfect example of how a small group of people can make a big difference in Juneau and in people's lives.
Lance Young, director
... for all the help.
AWARE is very happy to announce that we were a recipient of the recent city-wide canned food drive that the Juneau Boy Scouts and their volunteer leaders organized.
AWARE would like to thank the Southeast Alaska Council of the Boy Scouts of America who made it possible for our food pantry to be stocked with over 500 pounds of food just in time for the Easter holiday.
AWARE will now be able to provide food baskets in greater abundance to the families who use our services.
Thank you Boy Scouts!
