We of the Operation Christmas Child committee want to give a big thank you to the community of Juneau for extending their Christmas spirit to 1410 children of Russia Far East. These kids will receive shoeboxes filled to the brim with surprise and joy. What a blessing you are.
There were 26 churches that participated, four schools, two Girl Scout troops and many, many individuals.
The businesses who made the rest of this project possible: Alaska Marine Lines donated the shipping for all the boxes from here to Soldotna; World Wide Movers donated boxes for shipping & transported boxes from the collection center at Chapel by the Lake to AML; McDonalds donated hundreds of Happy Meal toys to help fill the shoeboxes; Thunder Mountain Soccer Camp donated new soccer balls; Hudsons Shoes, Payless Shoes, Footlocker and Fred Meyer donated empty shoe boxes (Hudsons actually had them stacked & boxed up waiting for pickup each week!)
Hearthside Books, The Udder Culture, Northern Echoes Bible Shoppe and many Juneau Churches displayed posters and handed out brochures for the project. They really helped get the word out.
Chapel by the Lake donated space and volunteers for the collection center. They had a dedicated team to pack the shoeboxes into containers and organize them for shipping.
Again, our sincere thanks to the many people who helped bring the Christmas spirit to 1410 children of Russia.

...for your participation
We would like to thank the local fire fighters and the community of Juneau for participating in our fund-raiser that took place on Oct. 29. Because local media helped us publicize the event, the community was aware of our intention to donate 100 percent of that day's sales.
We cannot thank the community enough for joining us at Canton House on Oct. 29. Because of their participation we were able to write a check to the fireman's fund at the end of the day for $8,175. This money will be donated to the widows and children of the firemen who died on Sept. 11. We would not have been able to make a donation of this size if the community did not care as much as they obviously do.

On behalf of Northland Assisted Living (REACH), I would like to thank Chad Guertin and members of Boy Scout Troop 55 for all of their hard work cleaning out gardens, planting flowers, and extending the cement patio in the back yard. Friendly Island Construction and Capital Cement made donations of materials. Northland would also like to thank the volunteers at Key Bank for giving the common areas of the home a fresh coat of paint. Everyone's hard work and time was greatly appreciated.
