United Way makes move with lots of helping hands

On behalf of the Kenai Peninsula United Way, I am thankful to have this opportunity to recognize the many contributors that assisted our organization with the recent relocation effort. Our new offices, located at 508 S. Willow St., realized a tremendous facelift thanks to some generous contributions of time, talent and material.

Peak Oilfield Service Co. is especially well deserving of our applause. In addition to donating the materials to renovate the space to meet our needs, the crew of Peak employees also completed the work as a welcome donation to the United Way.

We also would like to thank Columbia Paint for donating the equipment and supplies to paint our new offices -- and the volunteers from the Unocal Retiree Group that came in and painted our walls in record time.

We were able to be up and running with little down time thanks to the contributions from Alaska Communication Services and especially the hard work of Tom and Fred from the Clarion, who literally moved our entire office in a two-hour span.

We appreciate the cooperation of our new landlord, John Wil-liams, in allowing the improvements to be done, complete with carpeting and base trim done by John Putney.

We welcome correspondence from the community, and thanks to the donation by Doors & Windows Unlimited, we are able to receive mail directly at our new location.

The Kenai Peninsula United Way appreciates each of these contributions, and we look forward to being able to serve area residents by "Building A Better Community ... the United Way."
