Fort Greely furniture heads to flooded villages

Posted: Tuesday, August 25, 2009

FAIRBANKS - Volunteers are working to move couches, beds, washers, dryers and tables donated at Fort Greeley to villages along the Yukon River that were damaged by flooding from spring ice jams.

Garrison spokesman Ken Cummins told The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner there are enough furniture donations to outfit 40 homes.

Some already has made its way to Fairbanks by way of Lynden Transport, which donated truck space. Teamster volunteer Deborah Hutchens says other furniture is in temporary storage while the Tanana Chiefs Conference connects with villages.
