April 1st has always been known as “April Fools.” This year, Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) has changed it to a day of giving. These are unpredictable times we are living, but the one constant should always be togetherness. We are in this together. Cape Fox Corporation has a strong sense of community. To that end, in partnership with the Village of Saxman, CFC spent the day giving a bag of essential food and non-perishable items to those in need. In fact, by the end of the day, 120 gift bags were given to families in Saxman, Alaska.
Clifford Blair, President of CFC, had the vision for this event. Many CFC and Cape Fox Lodge employees put his idea into action by finding supplies and filling gift bags. Inside each bag was sugar, flour, coffee, Kool-Aid, dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, donuts, tea, chips, and bread. On the day of giving, Clifford Blair and Andrew Levian, Business Analyst with Cape Fox Corporation, drove the Faces of Ketchikan vans. The mayor of Saxman, Frank Seludo, along with Tour Supervisor Denny Blair, Assistant General Manager of Cape Fox Lodge Billy Joe Thomas, Corporate Chef Chris Lemerond, Commercial Business Operations Manager Tim Lewis, and an employee from the city, placed the gifts at each door.
Cape Fox Corporation cares and believes strongly in giving back to the community. CFC felt this small gesture would go a long way in lifting the spirits of our people in the community. Sometimes, during these difficult times, showing even the smallest gesture of kindness helps more than anything. By standing together, we will get through this together.
