The holidays are a beautiful time of the year in Alaska, with snow falling out our windows, presents under the tree, and smiles on family and friends. Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) wanted to ensure the community felt the joy of the season with a holiday food drive for the third year in a row. On December 21st, CFC brought the spirit of caring to Saxman, Alaska, through its Cape Fox Cares Program. Volunteers from Cape Fox Lodge (CFL) and CFC gathered to provide the Saxman community with food this holiday season so everyone could enjoy a family meal.
The spirits of our volunteers were high as they provided 130 families in Saxman with an 8lb. honey ham, a braid of sourdough rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, fruit, cranberry sauce, and a pumpkin pie. This year saw more volunteers than ever to deliver the delicious provisions, with 21 volunteers from CFL and CFC. CFC is honored to have dedicated employees who volunteered their time during the holidays to provide gifts of food to their neighbors, friends, and family. While we gave our community the gift of a holiday meal, CFC received a much bigger gift from the community with their smiles and words of appreciation. CFC would like to give a special thank you to the organizers and the volunteers of this fantastic event.
