ANCHORAGE - The Coast Guard plans to deliver more than 13 tons of donated salmon to Kotzebue next week.
The scheduled Monday delivery is part of a special food drive sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank and NANA Regional Corp. that also raised more than $11,000.
The 27,000 pounds of silver salmon fillets and dry goods being delivered will be distributed to families in Kotzebue and surrounding villages.
Petty Officer Charly Hengen says the fillets were donated through SeaShare, a nonprofit group based in Bainbridge Island, Wash.
