Please help! SOS from rural Alaska

I have reproduced this post from Anonymous Bloggers by Ann Strongheart to help extend the coverage of their appeal for assistance.

There's another village in need of help in rural Alaska. The weather is still pretty bad, prices continue to be high and the villagers are struggling.

Alakanuk (uh LUCK uh NUK)

Located in between Nunam Iqua and Emmonak.

Population: 700+

Households: 154

If you will recall I mentioned Alakanuk in my “Shopping Day” Story, hubby and I passed it on our way to Emmonak.


Food donations can be sent to:

Alakanuk Food Drive
c/o Alakanuk Traditional Council
P.O. Box 149
Alakanuk, AK 99554

Fuel Donations can be made two ways:

1. Credit Card donations can be made by calling Mike James, Alakanuk City Administrator at (907) 238-3313

2. Checks can be made payable to: City of Alakanuk and sent to the above address.
