The holiday season is often about giving to others. Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) believes now more than ever; we need to give back to our communities and to those in need. This year, that is just what CFC did. On December 15, 2020, CFC through its Cape Fox Cares Program gave the gift of food to the Saxman community who are our family and friends. CFC wanted to be sure the community would have the food before the holidays so everyone could enjoy a holiday family meal.
During these unprecedented times, giving back to our communities has become even more important. Tlingit natives have a strong belief in family and supporting the whole community. They believe that by giving back to others, you are making everyone stronger. The Tlingit natives of Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) have instilled these same beliefs into the organization. As the company continues to grow, CFC recognized the need to establish an organized, planned donation system. This new program is called Cape Fox Cares. The purpose of the program is to ensure CFC is giving back in the most effective way while still supporting our communities as much as possible.
