Jonathan is a resident of Ketchikan, Alaska on the Team Alaska Delegation of the June 2022 Special Olympics. Jonathan will be representing Alaska in the power lifting category.

To show our gratitude and how much we care, CFC used this Thanksgiving to give back to our community in Saxman, Alaska.

The first official day of winter is December 21st, and it arrived big in Alaska with a snowstorm. But, snow, rain, or ice cannot stop the spirit of caring during the holidays. Through its Cape Fox Cares Program, Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) set out once again to ensure that our community felt the spirit of caring. Volunteers from Cape Fox Lodge (CFL) and CFC gathered to brave the snow and provide the Saxman community with the gift of food this holiday season so everyone could enjoy a holiday family meal.
