This year, KEA employees held our annual food drive from November 7 – December 4, with boxes for each department to fill. There was friendly competition to see which department would contribute the most! We collected over 395 pounds of canned and dry goods, along with a $420 Safeway gift card and $50 cash. Our donations were enthusiastically picked up by Joe Buhlig, Kodiak Island Food Bank’s new Director, on December 6.
Sharing the Blessings of the Season has been an annual event for KEA employees since 2011, and helps to make the holiday season even brighter for community members who are in need of assistance!
The Kodiak Island Food Bank is always in need of food and monetary donations, and all donations are gratefully accepted. The Food Bank fights hunger and serves over 285 households, which averages around 1,000 individuals in Kodiak and five surrounding villages. Their website is http://www.kodiakislandfoodbank.org.
