Deep, heavy, wet snowfall this week slowed construction projects and made onsite outreach a challenge but work behind the scenes continues. Contacts for construction material donations and transportation are being investigated. A tour of the Fish Lake storage facility is scheduled for next week and agreement details are expected to be finalized shortly thereafter. With this facility available, donations of large construction items such as sheetrock, plywood, studs, sheet metal, etc. will be easier to manage and store closer to the building sites.
Case Management has contacted survivors about cold-weather gear needs over the last few weeks and the winter gear donations drive is wrapping up.
Planning for the Rummage Sale at Ritchie Brothers Auctions in Meadow Lakes is underway with advertising and volunteer and donation coordination. Stop by and see what treasures you can find for your home on December 5th & 6th, 10:AM – 2:PM at Ritchie Brothers, 7450 W Parks Hwy, Wasilla. Please check-in at the front gate before entering. All proceeds go to the Mckinley Fire Long Term Recovery.
