AA Dan Construction, Alaska Steel, Chevron, CISPRI, Hilcorp Alaska, OSK Nikiski, Ron’s Rent it Center, Tesoro Alaska, Team Industrial Service, and all the many community volunteers who assisted on our community build Saturday. While YRC knows that there are many supporters throughout the community who came together to assist the North Peninsula Recreation Center to see this playground become a reality. Youth Restoration Corps wished to thank all those companies and persons that came out in the rain and cold to help YRC in the community build process of this project.
