Anchorage, Alaska - May 2019

• #4207 gave a check for $2,271 and a box of winter clothing to the Anchorage Gospel Rescue Mission. The AGRM’s motto is “A meal, a bed, a soul well fed,” and they plan on using the money for helping those in need. 

• Marsha Lawton, Auxiliary Treasurer for Aerie #4207, presented a $1,000 check to the Anchorage Police and Fire Chaplains group. 

• Anchorage Aerie and Auxiliary #4207 donated $2,000 to Pamela Meadors, Executive Director of Alaska SPCA, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

• Auxiliary #4207 made a $2,000 donation to Dollars for Dogs, which is a non-profit organization that fully supports the Anchorage Police Department’s K-9 Unit. 

• Anchorage #4207 gave a $2,000 check to the Navy JROTC Unit of Robert Service High School; the money will be used for the students. 

• Anchorage #4207 made a $2,000 donation to Kid’s Kitchen, which is a small nonprofit that provides meals for children at the Fairview Recreation Center. Each weeknight, 50 to 100 youngsters sit down for a healthy meal cooked by Elgin Jones, who lived off Social Security and took no salary from his nonprofit. "I don't force kids to eat vegetables; I persuade them," said Jones, who has served up almost 2 million meals so far. "I make tuna casserole with peas so good they forget the peas are in there!" Sadly on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019, the Anchorage community lost a one of a kind when Elgin Richard Jones, 79 passed away. Mr. Elgin invested the last 23 years of his life to, "feed the children" - and not just any children, some of the poorest children of Anchorage. He served free, healthy, hot meals to children - quite a feat for a man who had lost his sight and had limited mobility. Aerie #4207 has had many fund raisers for the Kids Kitchen over the years and will continue to do so. 

• Auxiliary #4207 donated $3,000 to the Blood Bank of Alaska has a donor testing project. The project is raising funds for equipment to test blood drawn in Alaska. Currently all blood is sent to a facility in the lower 48 states, and the new equipment will not only save time and money but will make Alaska less dependent on transportation of blood samples. 

• President of Anchorage Women’s Club received a $2,000 check from Anchorage Auxiliary #4207 on February 7, 2019. The Anchorage Women’s Club will use the funds to help repair the steps leading to the 3rd floor after the November 30th earthquake.
